You Are Pericles!
“A man, whom both the waters and the wind In that vast tennis-court hath made the ball For them to play upon…”
Good at riddles and bad at sailing, Pericles is the journeying Prince of Tyre who gracefully endures a series of misfortunes and setbacks throughout his travels. On the run from a tyrannical king, Pericles feeds a starving nation, is shipwrecked, jousts for the favor of a princess, marries said princess, becomes a father, only to lose his entire family through a series of misunderstandings. All before intermission! A study in patience and kindness, Pericles is a Shakespearean hero you can unequivocally cheer on in the hope that a miracle could one day reunite him with his family.
