PERICLES is a late play, probably written in 1608 and preceding Cymbeline and The Winter’s Tale. In Shakespeare’s time it was one of the most frequently performed of his plays but probably the complexity of locations in the story made it less suitable to the rather formal proscenium arch style of theatre. It is now becoming more popular once again with several recent notable . The play is like no other written by Shakespeare for its depth of storyline. It is a wonderful story of pure adventure. It is perhaps easiest to think of it rather like a Shakespearian version of The 1001 Arabian Nights, a fairy tale that romances its way around the Mediterranean world.  Once again, there will be a captioned performance, by Stagetext, on the second Tuesday of the production, the 4th July.

SATG

Every year Shakespeare at The George perform one of the Bard's plays. We perform them in the open air in the Jacobean Courtyard of the George Hotel in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, England. A setting much as would have been used in Shakespeare's own time. From March 2015 SatG In the Parlour will produce an indoor (non Shakespeare) production in The Manchester Room in The George or the local churches. The productions are run by a group of Trustees and the entire cast and crew are volunteers. The performance and production is of the highest quality and you will find it easy to follow and a night to remember.
