SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK
June 21-24, 2019 SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK:
THE ADVENTURES OF PERICLES, Wren Park, Downtown Anderson
by William Shakespeare
Directed by David Larson and Produced by Diane Lee
Shakespeare in the park has become a summer staple for downtown Anderson, bringing thousands to Carolina Wren Park each summer. Thanks to generous support from the City of Anderson, the project continues, now as part of The Market’s season. The Adventures of Pericles is an epic journey featuring myth, magic, and adventure. One storm at sea brings love, and another takes it away. Pericles, Prince of Tyre is a fairytale hero who journeys to find reunion, redemption, and renewal in one of Shakespeare’s later, lesser known works. A delight for the eye and ear, The Adventures of Pericles has recently moved into the spotlight thanks to the acclaimed Stratford Festival production in Stratford, Ontario. Now, the epic, mythical adventure makes its way to Carolina Wren Park!
David Larson and Diane Lee return to mount this annual community sensation, bringing to life a Shakespeare story rarely told, but not soon forgotten.
