Pericles, Prince of Tyre


A radio adaptation of the play Pericles, Prince of Tyre. Shakespeare uses the poet Gower to relate the adventures, sufferings and wanderings of the young Prince. Pericles is haunted by Fate, buffeted by storms, driven from country to country, and even, at the height of his happiness, harshly separated from his wife and baby daughter Marina. But there are reconciling forces that lie beyond the apparent waywardness of Fortune.
