Blackstone Audio is proud to present the Oregon Shakespeare Festivals 2015 production of PERICLES, Shakespeare's first romance. This stunning work of audio theater, fully dramatized with performances by the OSF cast, and directed by Joseph Haj, is a must-listen.
Pericles, Prince of Tyre, sets out to woo a princess and sails headlong into harrowing adventure. Pursued by an evil king, Pericles is blown from port to exotic port. Along the way, he finds the love of his life, then loses her and their infant daughter in a storm-tossed sea.
Happily, this is a romance -- Shakespeares first -- where, in true storybook fashion, miracles reunite the lost with those who love them, bringing joy and safe harbor at last.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (1564 - 1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
Established in 1935, the Tony Award-winning OREGON SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL offers an eight-month season with a wide-ranging playbill of eleven productions, including Shakespeare, American classics, musicals, contemporary works, and world premieres. Plays originating at OSF have gone on to be produced by many regional theaters, and its productions have been recognized and honored nationally. In 2011, the Blackstone Audio and Oregon Shakespeare Festival collaboration of Hamlet was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album.
''A magical, richly emotional play that is, from its acting to the unchecked loveliness of its visual presentation, pretty much perfect.'' --North Bay Bohemian on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's theatrical production of Pericles
''A magic carpet ride that quietly charms and delights.'' --Oregonian on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's theatrical production of Pericles
