Like Shakespeare? See“Pericles: Prince of Tyre” at the Stratford Library
The Hudson Shakespeare Company of New Jersey will perform its final summer Shakespeare production at the Stratford Library with the classic romance, “Pericles: Prince of Tyre” at 2 p.m. Aug. 23, according to a release.
The theatre program is free and open to the public, the release said.
"A wandering king looking for love and family, a jousting tournament for a princess’ hand, Greek dances, bold assassins, goofy pirates and a visit to a down-on-its-luck brothel with a dash of divine intervention punctuate Hudson Shakespeare Company’s production of 'Pericles,” the release said.
"Directed by Noelle Fair, Shakespeare’s great adventure story concerns the Prince of Tyre who travels to exotic lands in search of a bride and the unexpected turns of fate which steer his life in remarkable ways."
Also in the release: The Hudson Shakespeare Company is now in its 23rd season of touring Shakespeare and classical works in the tri-state region. At the Stratford Library, performances are held outside and patrons are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to spread. In the event of inclement weather or extreme heat, the play will move inside to the air-conditioned Lovell Room.
For more information call the Library at 203-385-4162.
