FREE FOR ALL, Or Pay What You Will 



In partnership with Wentworth-Gardner Historic House, Seven Stages Shakespeare Company presents PERICLES, April 15- 23, 2022 at the historic warehouse in Portsmouth's South End.

All aboard for a story of Magic and Prayer... A story of humans thrust up against insurmountable odds, who- with patience and tenacity- find the ability to endure.

"Like all of Shakespeare’s plays, it is imperfect. ( if you disagree with me on this)." ~Dan Beaulieu, director of PERICLES and 7SSC Co-Founder & Artistic Director. "Because of its imperfections, its trials, tribulations, and magical reconnections, it is my heartfelt and faith-filled belief that it is the perfect story for this moment."

Rated R- PERICLES contains adult material. Those under 17 should be accompanied by an adult.


Seating is extremely limited to ensure the health and safety of all artists, audience members, and the greater community. All guests attending will be asked to show proof of COVID vaccination OR a negative COVID test within the last 48 hours prior to entering the warehouse.

TWO TICKET TYPES are available for your convenience:

  • Below Board ticket- A reserved, guaranteed seat- in a chair- can be secured here with a ticket purchase of $23.

  • Above Board ticket- A FREE FOR ALL, Or Pay What You Will ticket can be reserved here and guarantees you general admission to the production with seating options ranging from the floor to seats in chairs. Seating at this level is first-come, first served.

A select number of FREE FOR ALL, Or Pay What You Will tickets will be available one hour prior to every show on standby line at the warehouse.

The temperature in the warehouse can vary, and for every project we've produced there we always encourage folks to BYOB- "Bring Your Own Blanket." While we still invite you to do just that, we thought we'd also offer you a new way to stay snug & warm while also supporting FREE FOR ALL, Or Pay What You Will Shakespeare for the Seacoast-- a Seven Stages Shakespeare Company hoodie! For the first time ever, we're releasing a limited-run of 7SSC hoodies AND 7SSC hats for sale. Order yours today and it will be waiting for you at the door when you check-in for PERICLES!
