Dizzying and inventive… you’re unlikely to see a clearer, swifter production.

The Public Theater’s MOBILE SHAKESPEARE UNIT, part of the Public Theater’s long-standing commitment to making Shakespeare accessible to all, returns with a tale of riddles, revenge, and perilous adventure. PERICLES, one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays in his own time, is the story of a prince whose life is threatened after he solves the puzzle of a murderous king. Forced to flee across the seas, he embarks on an odyssey that will see him fall in love, lose a daughter, and eventually recover everything he thought he’d lost.

Continuing its commitment to bringing free Shakespeare to the community and strengthening audience engagement with the arts, The Public Theater will mount its MOBILE SHAKESPEARE UNIT again this October with a free three-week tour to the five boroughs, bringing free Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts. Following the mobile tour, PERICLES will have a sit-down run at The Public Theater from November 11 to November 30.

The Mobile Shakespeare Unit is made possible with the support of the Ford Foundation and The Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Additional generous support is provided by Bloomberg, and Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi, LLP. Special thanks to The Philip and Janice Levin Foundation’s lead support for The Public’s access and engagement programming.

All orders subject to $5 per ticket service fee and $2 per ticket facility fee. Service fees are waived when you buy in person at the Box Office. All fees are waived for Public Theater Members and Partners.
