Meet Marina, daughter of Pericles
Alexa Higgins is thrilled to be playing the role of Marina in Bard in the Barracks’ upcoming show, The Adventures of Pericles. Separated from her mother Thaisa and her father Pericles in a terrible storm, Marina, on whom the second half of the play centres, grows up a virtual orphan, buffeted around the world by the winds of change, and the occasional pirate. We watch Marina get tossed headlong into one dangerous situation after another, but with a unique determination to see the good in everyone, a lot of faith, and some very smooth talking, she navigates the choppy waters on her own. Alexa is honoured to be playing such a fascinating character, and to work with such a fine Fredericton company this summer!
