Shakespeare’s Pericles discussed at Greenwich Library

Devoted Shakespeare fans take note, Bob Smith continues to lead a six-week discussion of Pericles at Greenwich Library.

“Pericles is an odd little piece that works wonderfully on stage, Mr. Smith said. “It’s brief and episodic — a kind of Shakespearean travelogue with a couple of fabulous brothel scenes and the best father-daughter reunion outside King Lear. In the 50 years that I’ve worked on these texts with groups, no play has inspired better conversations than Pericles.”

On May 7, the final week of the series, a film version of Pericles will be shown.

The program is open to all at no charge. The Shakespeare series is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and contributions by generous donors. Copies of the play will be provided.
