Cotswold Arcadians next production

By Shirley Ludford On Sunday 25th June 2017

Performances 25th-29th July
Cotswold Arcadians’ production this year is a swashbuckling adventure story, complete with kings and queens, handsome princes and beautiful princesses, marauding pirates, wicked stepmothers, sleazy lowlife and mysterious wizards; it offers shipwreck, plague, kidnap, murder, hope and despair, love and loss. 

"Pericles" will be set in the magical world of Middle Eastern storytelling where the content hovers in that tantalising zone between reality and fantasy. The fast-moving narrative whisks us around the Mediterranean Sea, to Tyre, Tarsus, Antioch, Ephesus, Myteline and Pentapolis, exotic locations rich with romantic connotations. It is a tale such as old sailors traditionally tell, one that would not be out of place alongside those of Sinbad, Aladdin and Ali Baba in the Arabian Nights.

Pericles will be performed in the beautiful grounds of Hatherop Castle.
Gates open at 6pm for picnics
performances at 7.30pm
