Frontier Homestead is very excited to be involved with the second production from Women of Will. They will be performing William Shakespeare’s Pericles at the museum on October 18-20. Following their well-received 2017 production of Julius Caesar, this incredibly talented group of female actors, technicians, designers, and artistic staff are ready to tackle Pericles, one of the Bard’s most popular plays during his life time but rarely performed today. Be sure to see this show and check it off your bucket list. Director Britannia Howe writes:
“Pericles is set in an ancient world, it is a fairy-tale of our time. One we should read to our daughters and our sons. It was popular during Shakespeare’s lifetime and in the decades following. It was the play that reopened the London Globe Theatre in 1631.
It is little accident that Pericles offered an opportunity for audiences to come together and understand themselves and their place in an arbitrary and unjust universe. With themes of loss, mortality, and rebirth I find it a beautiful piece for Women of Will to present. The show presents images of grace and strength in femininity with a pregnant mother, a young woman who transforms a brothel to a convent, and goddess Diana.”
We at Frontier Homestead hope you join us for this retelling of Shakespeare’s classic work performed by Women of Will. The show runs October 18-20. Curtain at 7:30. Tickets are $5.00 at the door.
