Pericles, Prince of Tyre Reviews

Lumiere Reader:  "one great scene ... an incredibly well choreographed fight scene .... might be worth the price of admission for that fight alone".

GayNZ:  "Pericles, Prince of Tyre, in the safe hands of Geoff Allen and his talented team, is a wonderfully exotic experience with many, many highlights - an excellent multi-player fight (Michael Hurst) with a slight nod to The Hunger Games ... and some very fine - and often delightfully quirky - performances".

Rip It Up: "There are plenty of scuffles and an excellent fight scene where the actors kick up clouds of dust".
