A unique double bill of two plays in one evening: Shakespeare’s Troilus in Cressida and Euripides The Trojan Women. Featuring virtuosic performances and an exciting composition by Patrick Neil Doyle, these two plays are a a tour-de-force evening based on Shakespeare’s and Euripides’ unique perspective of the Trojan War; examining our addiction to humanity’s unshakable attraction to love, violence, destruction and chaos. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War? The story of the Trojan War, as told in the Iliad, is the foundational epic of Western civilization. For centuries the triumphs and struggles of Helen, Achilles, Hecuba, Odysseus and the heroes and heroines of the Bronze Age have inspired, shocked and warned us of the horrors of war and the consequences of destructive human behavior. This timeless tale, perhaps now more relevant than ever, is told over three unique theatrical experiences: An Iliad (playing 24 January 2018), Troilus and Cressida and The Trojan Women (30 April 2018).
