Event description

All aboard for a story of Magic and Prayer… of humans thrust up against insurmountable odds, who find the ability to endure.

In partnership with Wentworth-Gardner Historic House, Seven Stages Shakespeare Company presents PERICLES, April 15- 23, 2022 at the historic warehouse in Portsmouth’s South End.

All aboard for a story of Magic and Prayer… A story of humans thrust up against insurmountable odds, who- with patience and tenacity- find the ability to endure.

“Like all of Shakespeare’s plays, it is imperfect. (dan@7stagesshx.org if you disagree with me on this).” ~Dan Beaulieu, director of PERICLES and 7SSC Co-Founder & Artistic Director. “Because of its imperfections, its trials, tribulations, and magical reconnections, it is my heartfelt and faith-filled belief that it is the perfect story for this moment.”


Seating is extremely limited to ensure the health and safety of all artists, audience members, and the greater community. All guests attending will be asked to show proof of COVID vaccination OR a negative COVID test within the last 48 hours prior to entering the warehouse.
