Flute Theatre is performing Pericles for families and small groups by appointment on Zoom until July 18.
The show, which tells Shakespeare’s story through a series of interactive games, was due to be performed across the UK throughout 2020. The company has adapted the games — themed around a fairground — so they can be experienced online.
Viewers will experience a stormy shipwreck and a miraculous resurrection while “meeting” pirates, kings, magicians and fishermen.
Artistic director Kelly Hunter said: “The Covid-19 crisis has changed everything I do. Just as Pericles reaches across oceans to find his family, we’ve stretched ourselves to keep contact with our community of autistic individuals and in doing so we’ve created a whole new way of telling this story that we can now share with the world, one family at a time.
“Our performances will offer families who feel marginalised and locked away a place to combat their isolation.”
