Pericles Prince Of Tyre - The BBC Shakespeare Collection DVD - NEW & SEALED
Pericles Prince Of Tyre
"..I see that Time’s the king of men,
He’s both their parent, and he is their grave,
And gives them what he will, not what they crave."
Starring Amanda Redman, Juliet Stevenson...
When Pericles discovers the terrible answer to King Antiochus’ riddle, he flees for his life. In self-exile from Tyre he encounters famine, shipwreck, love and fatherhood, but in his desire to return home, he once again jeopardises his life and those he loves.
It is probable that George Wilkins wrote the first nine scenes of this romance, with Shakespeare making additions and writing the remaining thirteen. In this production, a great cast make light of the play’s traditional staging problems and craft a compelling performance.
