Madly in love with Cressida, Trojan prince Troilus is heartbroken when she is traded to the Greeks in a prisoner exchange. Amidst the turmoil of the two lovers, Greece and Troy remain at war with Agamemnon, the king of the Greeks, and Priam, the king of Troy, at their respective helms. Shakespeare’s most experimental and undefinable play, Troilus and Cressida’s interweaving plots tell various stories of the Trojan War.

Known as “The Bard of Avon,” William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare’s works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare’s innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech.
