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.Performers Roger Allam, David Arneil, David Bamber, Jasper Britton, David Burt, Robert Burt, Claudia Cadette, Oliver Cotton, Raymond Coulthard, Jim Creighton, Ruddy L Davies, Simon Day, Peter de Jersey, Vernon Douglas, Daniel Evans, Andrew French, alexander Hanson, Jack James, Oscar James, Samantha Lavender, Liam McKenna, Charles Millham, John Nolan, Sophie Okonedo, Chu Omambala, Dhobi Oparei, Sara Powell, Denis Quilley, Mark Springer, Gilz Terera, Mark Umbers, David Weston, Michael Wildeman, Jax Williams.
