Enter a post-apocalyptic world...
Shakespeare's epic tale of war-crossed lovers is transported to a futuristic world resounding with the rhythm of battle.
Written around 1601 the play is set in Troy and the Greek camp outside the walls during the great siege. Troilus 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.
