TROILUS & CRESSIDA – Rose Playhouse

In London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Caroline Hanks-FarmerLeave a Comment

The first thing to know about Troilus and Cressida is that it’s not really about Troilus and Cressida. Or at least not just about them. Based on the Iliad, the play picks up the story of the Trojan Wars seven years in, where we find the Greeks fighting amongst themselves because their leader Agamemnon’s stolen a war prisoner from their star warrior Achilles.
