Troilus and Cressida

About This Show

In the 7th year of the Trojan War, Troilus, a young prince, pines for the affections of Cressida, a bright young woman who knows how to play it cool. Meanwhile, the heroes of the Iliad – Ajax, Ulysses, Achilles and the kings they serve – debate whether to return the dangerously beautiful captive Helen or continue to fight without end. Nations and lovers alike do battle in this funny, piercing drama about romance and revenge in a world at war.

Tickets to Shakespeare in the Park are always free to the public. Up to two tickets per person can be acquired in-person on the day of a performance when the box office opens at noon, up until curtain time.
