The Tyrant’s Kiss est une version contemporaine de la pièce de Shakespeare Pericles.

Perry part pour un long et dangereux périple en Méditerranée. Par deux fois, il échappe de peu à la noyade... Il est emprisonné pendant 15 ans... Il perd sa femme, sa fille et toutes ses possessions, mais il ne perd jamais courage ni espoir. Pourra- t-il trouver le bonheur ?

Cette pièce écrite en anglais moderne suit la trame de l’histoire originale et s’avère d’une pertinence impressionnante de nos jours.

Antioch: So now you're coming with us.
Perry: But my family – my things – my clothes -
Antioch: I don't see any family. I don't see any things.
Perry: My things – they're with my friends...
Antioch: Oh, so you have friends. Who exactly are your friends?
Perry: They're... I don't know.
Antioch: You don't know who your friends are?
Perry: No. I've forgotten. I have no friends.
Antioch: No friends. How unfortunate.
Thaliard: How unfortunate.
Antioch: You are an illegal immigrant, with no right to be in this country.
Perry: I told you. I had papers. They were stolen. I've been to the embassy. I've applied for new papers. You can't take me away. You've got no right.
Antioch: You're the one with no rights.
(Perry reaches for his pocket)
Thaliard: Stand still!
Antioch: Keep your hands up! Now Thaliard, see what's in that pocket.
Perry: Keep off me.
Thaliard: It's money, boss.
Antioch: So it is. Money.
(Thaliard takes the money)

Silvia: I don't know what to think.
Piers: Look Silvia, Vincent's gone. Expelled from school. I'm afraid you probably won't see him again – your father will see to that.
Silvia: He'll find a way to see me!
Piers: You can rely on me. I'll look after you, and help you get over Vincent.
Silvia: I don't want to 'get over' Vincent! I want to see him again, as soon as possible!
Piers: I'm sure. But given the way Vincent is – and the way your dad is – I think that may never happen.
Silvia: Piers, I'm not quite sure what you're trying to tell me. But I don't think I want to hear it. Now as I said, I want to be on my own. Goodbye.
