Return to Shopping Basket

When impoverished pearl-diver Kino finds the pearl of the world he believes his family's life will be transformed forever. Seduced by the pearl's beauty and promise of riches, he is blind to the danger of having something that everyone else wants.
Instead of bringing hope, the pearl leads Kino and his family down a dark and dangerous path.

A timeless fable about the allure of wealth, the confines of class, and the redemptive power of love. The Pearl asks us to consider what we value most in the world.
Dumbshow present their critically-acclaimed new adaptation of John Steinbeck's classic novella; bringing it to life with their trademark visual inventiveness, original music and playful theatricality.
