The Complete Works of William Shakespeare

Troilus and Cressida

An Unabridged Staged Reading

February 1 – 2, 2014 Hamon Hall

2403 Flora Street, Dallas, TX 75201


Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of the least performed plays in Shakespeare’s canon. There were no recorded public performances of the play in Shakespeare’s lifetime and it wasn’t staged in its original form until the early 20th Century. Even today, the chances are rare to experience this text.

As Shakespeare’s retelling of the Trojan War, Troilus and Cressida tells the story of Troilus, a brother of Paris, who falls in love with Cressida. She loves him, too, but plays hard to get. Featuring heroes from Greek mythology including Ulysses, Achilles and Ajax, and their plans to try to end the war, this classic tragedy covers the themes of betrayal and jealousy.
