Shakespeare By The Sea


Written by William Shakespeare, George Wilkins, and Andy Jones
Directed by Paul Rowe

Pericles, the eponymous hero of our tale, shares many of the characteristics of “Jack”, the hero of the well-known Newfoundland Jack Tale tradition. He escapes the clutches of an evil king, wins the hand of a princess, and navigates perils on sea and land as an exile until he is reunited with friends, family, and home. With the renowned comedian, actor, and writer Andy Jones having rewritten the lines of Gower, the play’s narrator, in his own inimitable style, this production promises to be a journey through Shakespeare straight into the heart of Newfoundland and Labrador heritage and culture.

Andy Jones and Paul Rowe alternate performances in the role of Gower. with Chris Hibbs as Pericles. Lauren Andrews, Spencer Bellows, Katie Billard, Brandon Cave, Sean Collins, Rebecca Dwyer, Nick Gushue, Bailey Jackson, Darnell Johnson, Megan Jones, Chris Langdon, Evan Maddick, Karin Murray-Bergquist, and Melissa Ralph
