Troilus And Cressida
"Lechery, lechery; still, wars and lechery; nothing else holds fashion: a burning devil take them!"
Starring Anton Lesser, Suzanne Burden,Charles Gray, Benjamin Whitrow and John Shrapnel...
The bitter Trojan War drags on, the Greeks blame Achilles’ apathy for low morale, while Troy’s hero Hector challenges one of the enemy to a personal duel. And after her father exchanges Cressida for a Trojan prisoner, the war becomes personal for her distraught lover Troilus.
Jonathan Miller pitches his acclaimed production of this part-history, part-tragedy between satire and savage farce, highlighting Shakespeare’s cynical standpoint where love is mocked and heroism made absurd.
