About this show

Laura Pyper and Paul Stocker star in the title roles of Shakespeare's Globe's production of William Shakespeare's Troilus & Cressida, directed by Matthew Dunster. A war caused by one love affair destroys another. Seven years have passed since the Greeks first began their siege of Troy to recapture Helen, and on the Trojan side of the walls the beautiful Cressida, aided and abetted by her hilariously intriguing uncle Pandarus, has embarked upon a passionate love affair with Prince Troilus. When Cressida is forced to join her treacherous father in the Greek camp, can their love survive a difficult separation or will it join the other casualties of war?
