Troilus and Cressida (2005)
Troilus and Cressida
Set during the Trojan War, Shakespeare's powerful drama about a doomed love and the futility of war is also an extraordinarily topical enquiry into ethics, values and the slippery nature of truth. This is the first radio production for more than 20 years. The Trojans are spoken by black actors while the Greeks are white, a ‘colour aware’ casting that is used to highlight the difference between the camps.Tweet
