12-09-15 – Minneapolis, MN>Rapid City, SD – Pericles: The poet Gower introduces the story and provides a commentary throughout. Antiochus has a riddle which any prince seeking the hand of his daughter has to solve, though the penalty for solving it is death, for the riddle reveals Antiochusâ€™ incest with his daughter. Pericles of Tyre interprets the riddle, but returns home, realizing his danger. Antiochus then sends Thaliard to kill him. Pericles puts his friend Helicanus in charge of Tyre, and leaves until he can safely return.
Pericles arrives at Tarsus and brings food to the starving town. Continuing his voyage, he is shipwrecked and washed up on the shores of Pentapolis. With the help of fishermen who rescue him, he goes to Simonidesâ€™ court to enter a tournament as suitor to Thaisa. He wins her heart, but Simonides feigns disapproval to test Pericles, later approving of their marriage.
