Torchlight Shakespeare presents:

The Amazing Adventures of PERICLES Prince of Tyre

"Dueling knights, dastardly pirates, proper princesses, promiscuous prostitutes, an ancient goddess and not one but TWO shipwrecks!

How could the Fools have waited so long to tell the thrilling tale of Pericles, Prince of Tyre? When our hero discovers a dark secret about the evil king of Antioch, Pericles is forced to flee for his life.

So begins an epic voyage that takes Pericles across several seas to far off lands where he discovers adventure, love and just maybe what life is all about. Don’t miss this exciting, fast paced escapade set in a mythical world and played against the backdrop of Ottawa’s parks.

Directed by Catriona Leger and featuring AL Connors as Pericles, the show runs July 4 to August 20 in parks all over Ottawa and beyond!
