Featuring 'Pericles' and 'The Fair Maid of the West'

Now through July 10, 2016  
In Iowa City's Lower City Park

"Pericles" is William Shakespeare's epic tale of the prince of Tyre, who finds himself first fighting for the hand of his wife, and then searching for his lost daughter at sea.

Thomas Heywood's "The Fair Maid of the West" is an adventure romp set during the Anglo-Spanish War, featuring plenty of comedy and mistaken identities as it follows the adventures of maiden Bess Bridges. This summer, Riverside Theatre will be presenting an exciting new adaptation of "The Fair Maid of the West" by Chicago actor and director Kevin Theis.  Learn more
