Pericles, Prince of Tyre
Opens April 24

Shakespeare's anarchic romance
April 24 - May 24
Thursday - Sunday, $20 - $25


"An excellent production that will charm the pants of an...audience"
On Stage Los Angeles

"The ensemble is charming and versatile...Chalsma's direction is lovely and smart..."
Stage Raw

"The entire cast is superb...ISC's production of Pericles, Prince of Tyre has blown away my long held antipathy with Shakespeare and if that is strong enough for a curmudgeon like me, just imagine how thoroughly you will enjoy this show."

"The audience gets an intriguing look at a classic that upends expectations and makes them part of Pericles' monumental adventure. Go see for yourself!"
Broadway World

The fantastic story includes shipwrecks, pirates, a king who uses the skulls of his victims as interior design, an abandoned baby, and a knight in rusted armor fighting for love. At every turn, Pericles confronts events both grotesque and miraculous as his long and brilliant history unfolds. This is one of Shakespeare's strangest plays and includes adult themes and situations.
