The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of Troilus and Cressida in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with two leading directors – Trevor Nunn and Michael Boyd – so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death.
Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare plays offer an accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
