Public Acts | Pericles


Public Acts is the National Theatre's nationwide initiative to create extraordinary acts of community and theatre. The programme creates ambitious new works of participatory theatre and is built on sustained partnerships with theatres and community organisations across the UK who share our vision of theatre as a force for change. The first Public Acts production was Pericles in August 2018, at the NT in the Olivier Theatre. Emily Lim, Director of Public Acts, Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre, and members of the Pericles company talk about the production. The next production will be As You Like It from 24 - 27 August 2019 at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch. Find out more and book £15 tickets:
