A collaboration between the Royal Shakespeare Company and The Wooster Group at the 2012 World Shakespeare Festival. The two companies took opposite sides in the Trojan War: we staged the scenes in Troy while the RSC staged the scenes in the Greek camp. The juxtaposition of contrasting approaches, sometimes awkward, other times galvanizing, accented the cultural face-off in the play.

The Wooster Group will perform our own version of TROILUS & CRESSIDA in New York in January – February 2014. To buy tickets before sales open to the general public, become a Wooster Group donor »
