Troilus and Cressida
The Musical




Seven long years we’ve been here. . .

Join the princess and prophetess, Cassandra, in Troy for Marcia Eppich-Harris’s musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida.

The Greeks and Trojans have reached a stalemate as the Trojan War enters its seventh year. As soldiers on both sides debate where to go from here, the Trojan prince, Troilus, occupies himself with thoughts of love for Cressida, whose father has defected to the Greeks. Meanwhile, Cressida, Helen, and Cassandra wonder how to protect their hearts, minds, and bodies in a world that views them as nothing more than property.

Content Advisory: This show contains frank discussion of sexual assault and the effects of war on women and children. Recommended for audiences 16 and up.
