Royal Shakespeare Company
Troilus and Cressida swear they will always be true to one another. But in the seventh year of the siege of Troy their innocence is tested and exposed to the savage corrupting influence of war, with tragic consequences.
Virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie collaborates with RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran to create a satirical futuristic vision of a world resounding with the rhythm of battle.
“Sweeping and confident production of Shakespeare’s rarely performed tragedy” - The Standard ★★★★
“The stage bristles with sexual chemistry and nervous tension between the infatuated young couple. Amber James' Cressida is no wallflower. In a strong, powerful performance her Cressida is a razor-sharp, street-wise and self-aware 20-something who refuses to be weakened by her feelings for Troilus. She looks edgy too.” - WhatsOnStage
“Gregory Doran’s production offers many good things… Adjoa Andoh memorably brings out the manipulative monstrosity behind Ulysses’s beguiling rhetoric… Oliver Ford Davies is a classic Pandarus, brimming over with senile prurience… The central lovers are also well played, with Amber James’s spryly intelligent Cressida provoked beyond endurance by the naive insistence of Gavin Fowler’s Troilus on her fidelity.” - The Guardian
