Troilus and Cressida
"I cannot fight upon this argument;
It is too starved a subject for my sword." I.i, Troilus. Troilus and Cressida
Sound Theatre Company presents Shakespeares rarely-performed searing satire on sex, politics and the consequences of an entrenched and aimless war. It is seven years into the Trojan War which is not progressing and Trojans and Greeks alike are questioning the value of continuing the conflict. TROILUS AND CRESSIDA centers around Troilus, the young son of the Trojan House of Priam, and his love for Cressida, when political maneuvering interferes with their blossoming romance. Simultaneously comic, tragic and satiric, Shakespeare offers a chilling twist on the classical mythic heroes of antiquity.
Continuing a tradition established for Tempest in the Lake , STC will also present this Shakespearean drama in a site-specific environment, intended to lend an immediate and credible lens through which to view this classical text. TROILUS AND CRESSIDA performances will coincide with the five year remembrance for the start of the Iraq war, including commemorative performances on March 19 and 20th.
