THE Royal Shakespeare Company’s next production from Stratford-upon-Avon will be the tragedy Troilus and Cressida.

Described as ‘wonderful, epic and hugely rewarding’ (The Times), don’t miss the chance to see it broadcast live at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Wednesday, November 14 (7pm).

Troilus and Cressida swear they will always be true to one another. But in the seventh year of the siege of Troy their innocence is tested and exposed to the savage corrupting influence of war, with tragic consequences.

Virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie collaborates with RSC artistic director Gregory Doran to create a satirical futuristic vision of a world resounding with the rhythm of battle.

The Greek army is encamped under the walls of Troy and, at the point at which the play begins, the war has reached stalemate. The Greeks are quarrelling amongst themselves and the Trojans are debating the value of continuing the war merely for the sake of keeping Helen.

Troilus is much distracted from these military concerns by his love for Cressida, the daughter of a Trojan who has defected to the Greek camp.

However, after only one night together they are parted and almost immediately she betrays Troilus. On discovering this, Troilus is plunged into despair and vows revenge.

'What a glorious play this is,’ says the Evening Standard, while Whatsonstage describes it as ‘Epic, Mad Max style’.

The People Tree pop up restaurant will be offering a set menu before this event, which includes three courses for £23 (or £26 with a glass of prosecco) Go to for further information.
