CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Written around 1601 the play is set in Troy and the Greek camp outside the walls during the great siege. Trolius loves Cressida, daughter of a Trojan priest who has defected. The siege goes on all around with tales of Ajax and Achilles but no real progress. Troilus and Cressida are parted when Cressida is exchanged for a Trojan prisoner and we leave the siege still as fruitless as ever. This project will explore the eloquence possible in speaking Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida
