Troilus and Cressida swear they will always be true to one another. But in the seventh year of the siege of Troy their innocence is tested, and exposed to the savage corrupting influence of war, with tragic consequences. In the RSC’s first gender-balanced production, the Bard’s “most testosterone-fueled” play will feature a 50/50 split of male and female actors in an offering that traditionally features just a handful of women. Virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie collaborates with RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran to create a satirical futuristic vision of a world resounding in battle.
