16th Jun 2016 1:34pm

Cheek by Jowl is delighted to announce that Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod will return to the French language with a new production of Shakespeare’s Pericles opening in Paris and London in 2018.

Pericles is one of Shakespeare's strangest and most heart rending plays. Pericles, shipwrecked on the Mediterranean navigates a stormy sea of pirates, magicians, brothels, kidnappers, tournaments, plots against his life...  ‎and divine intervention from the Goddess Diana. Incest, treachery, murder, love, joy all explode in this giant theatrical firework ...  the embers dim and glow in one of the greatest and most moving scenes Shakespeare ever wrote, Pericles recognition of his long lost daughter Marina. 

Pericles marks Cheek by Jowl's first Shakespeare in French and will complete the company's cycle of Shakespeare's four late romances: Cymbeline (2007), The Tempest (2011) and The Winter's Tale (2015).
