We designed marketing materials for two of Shakespeare in Clark Park’s productions, Peril’s Island and Pericles. Peril’s Island gained national recognition from NPR’s Here and Now for it’s unique production that took place in Kensington’s Harrow Park.
Pericles also received plenty of praise from critics. Broad Street Review applauded the Shakespeare in Clark Park crew for the circus spin on one of Shakespeare’s least popular works. Pericles was first production the organization brought to life once pandemic social distancing restrictions were loosened.
