About the Authors
  • 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.

    • The first edition of Troilus and Cressida to offer a detailed account of the theatrical treatment of the play
    • Includes an illustrated introduction, which traces the play from its earliest printing to present day
    • Draws upon photographic archives, promptbooks and video tapes of recent productions

    Reviews & endorsements

    "I cannot recommend too highly the whole series to all theatre lovers, theatregoers, theatre practicioners, and anybody who enjoys Shakespeare."
    Robert Tanitch, What's On in London

    "This edition is one to which I will turn to again and again. It should appeal to anyone who believes that production history offers an especially vibrant kind of interpretation. Its composite portrait of Troilus and Cressida is of a play that has indeed come into its own in the modern world." - David Bevington, University of Chicago
