Role Description

Antiochus and Ensemble: a king who is carrying on an incestuous relationship with his daughter and who does not hesitate to have anyone who guesses his secret assassinated. Proud, cunning, and quick on his feet. This role will double with others, likely including but not limited to Cerimon, a lord of Ephesus and a healer. Restores Pericles’ wife, Thaisa’s, life when her body is washed to shore and aids her in finding a home in Diana’s temple. Kind, selfless, and helpful. Also likely to double with others including Leonine, Boult, gentlemen, fishermen, knights, and lords.
