"This production of 'Pericles' was the result of a two week workshop project during which performers from Europe and Africa came together in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth, to explore approaches to the performance of Shakespeare. The play was performed at the 6th Triennial Congress of the Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa and as part of the National Arts Centre in Grahamstown in English but with some Xhosa translation. The production was revived as part of a residency at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in September 2004. The residency also included workshops with student nurses on loss and bereavement, and with immigrant support staff at the hospital on displacement. The revived production was subsequently seen at the Dover Roundhouse and, as part of the Canterbury Festival, at the Theatre Royal Margate. Paul Huntley-Thomas, Victoria Gillmon, Jim Derek, Lisa Payne, Mat Spray and Kitty Myers performed the revival."
