"Lechery, lechery, still wars and lechery: nothing else holds fashion." Love, rivalry and war are a-plenty in this new production of a Shakespearean rarity. 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)
