Troilus and Cressida

Sunday 30 October 2005 19:00-21:30 (Radio 3)

By William Shakespeare.

Set during the Trojan War, Shakespeare's hugely powerful drama is both the story of doomed love and a representation of the futility of war. It is also an extraordinarily topical enquiry into ethics, value and the slippery nature of truth. This production is the first on radio for more than 20 years.
