The Stanford Shakespeare Company brings the tale of Prince Pericles to life, exploring the power of relationships across time and distance. The play follows Pericles and his family as they journey across the Mediterranean, finding love and facing tragedy, with the power of the family's bonds overcoming all. Experience a thrilling dell-arte-inspired aesthetic that transports the audience into another world while telling an intimate story that holds meaning for us all.

The house will open at 7:30, and seating is open. The show runs 2 hours, with a 15 minute intermission.

The show features brief moments of mild violence.
