Troilus and Cressida – Los Angeles Drama Club

Troilus and Cressida

Troilus and Cressida

This play (like Cymbeline) is not on the Greatest Hits list, but we love it! T&C tells the story of the “heros” of the Trojan War (Achilles, Agamemnon, Hector, and others less well known). It swings wildly between bawdy comedy and epic tragedy, and the audience is not always sure how to feel about its complex characters!

Yet another instance where Shakespeare truly wrote into the future, this play is packed with issues that are very relevant to a middle school/high school cast. While we will treat them in a manner appropriate for the ages involved, parents should be aware that the play involves some mature topics, and we suggest reading a synopsis, and discussing any concerns with us prior to registering.
