★★★★ “Groundbreaking Shakespeare” The Guardian
“the finest Pericles of recent years” Fringe Review.
Flute Theatre’s brand new production of Pericles, adapted by Kelly Hunter.
Shakespeare’s lesser-known story of loss, storms and miraculous reunions, makes this beautiful romantic play a timely experience for all audiences in our modern world. Our unique event of double performances pushes the boundaries of what is possible for live Shakespeare performance in the 21st century, both in terms of audience reach and artistic vision. Flute Theatre premiered Pericles at Craiova International Shakespeare Festival, Romania in May 2022 and is currently touring the UK. The show is created on the back of their successful adaptations of Hamlet and Twelfth Night, which toured the European festival circuit between 2015-2019.
