When impoverished 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.
Dumbshow bring John Steinbeck’s novella to life with their trademark visual inventiveness and playful theatricality.
