Pericles

How far must we travel to come home?

Prince Pericles has everything but understands little. When a reckless act threatens his safety, he must flee his home and take to sea. Reliant on the whims of the fates and the kindness of strangers, Pericles is driven from shore to shore.

Only by reaching the ends of the earth may he finally understand what it means to come home.

A huge company of all ages from across London join together with professional artists to breathe new life into this classic tale in a musical version on the Olivier stage.

Tickets:
£15 adults /
£7.50 under-18s
