It's not one of Shakespeare's more popular plays, but in the last few years a few different East Bay companies have done Pericles, and this summer both Cal Shakes and later the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival are taking on the rollicking shaggy-dog story of pirates, incest, famine, shipwrecks, tournaments and a serial calamity (which has nothing to do with the historical Athenian statesman). Cal Shakes has done it before in 1979 and 1997, and now does again in a year that contains none of those same digits. Minneapolis director Joel Sass makes his West Coast debut with a new production of the flamboyantly theatrical eight-person Pericles that he created at the Guthrie Theatre in 2005. Out-of-towner Chris Kelly leads a lively cast of Cal Shakes stalwarts including Delia MacDougall, Danny Scheie, Ron Campbell, Domenique Lozano and Sarah Nealis. May 28 through June 22 at Bruns Amphitheater (100 Gateway Blvd., Orinda) or 510-548-9666.
