TROILUS & CRESSIDA

ABOUT
Love is war is hell is love is war is hell.

In this darkly funny exploration of anti-heroes, Shakespeare skews the great heroes of antiquity. The face that launched 1,000 ships has Troy in a 7 year war. Achilles, Hector, Agamemnon, and Paris parlay and battle while Shakespeare’s lesser-known lovers, Troilus and Cressida, attempt to find love. But when princes are not heroic and lovers are not true, what is worth fighting for? What is hell; love or war?
