Troilus and Cressida

by

Troilus and Cressida Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As social turmoil increased in England, audiences grew more in tune with Shakespeare's cynical undercutting of the Homeric tale of Greeks and Trojans, and less dismissive of his dark comedic treatment of the Medieval tale of Troilus and Cressida. This edition of his problematic play traces its theatrical history. It draws upon critical responses, photographic archives, promptbooks, and video tapes of more recent productions to reveal changes in production styles and emphasis, against a broader background of social change.

Synopsis:

The performance history in English of Troilus and Cressida began in the early twentieth century. This edition is the first to offer a detailed account of the theatrical treatment of this problematic and fascinating play on the British and North American stages from its first revivals at the beginning of the twentieth century to the present. Drawing upon critical responses, photographic archives, promptbooks and video tapes, Frances Shirley traces the important changes in production styles, emphases, and responses to the play.

Synopsis:

A detailed account of the theatrical treatment of Troilus and Cressida.
