A Company of Fools Theatre makes it’s first ever trip to Kanata North with a Torchlight Shakespeare performance of-The Amazing Adventures of Pericles, Prince of Tyre  directed by Catriona Leger. The Fools perform for one evening only, Friday  August 19th in Whalen Park. (

Suitable for young and old, it is a tale of dueling knights, dastardly pirates, proper princesses, promiscuous prostitutes, an ancient goddess and not one but two shipwrecks!  How could the Fools have waited so long to tell the thrilling tale of Pericles, Prince of Tyre!  When our hero discovers a dark secret about the evil king of Antioch, Pericles is forced to flee for his life.  So begins an epic voyage that takes him across several seas to far off lands where he discovers adventure, love and just maybe what life is all about.  Don’t miss this exciting, fast paced escapade set in a mythical world and played against the backdrop of your local park.

Showtime:  7pm  The show is 90 minutes in length with no intermission
