      A Tragedie

      In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The resulting productions, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilised the best theatrical and television directors and brought great performances from leading contemporary actors.

      “Lechery, lechery; still, wars and lechery; nothing
      else holds fashion: a burning devil take them!”

      The bitter Trojan War drags on – the Greeks blame Achilles’ apathy for low morale, while Troy’s hero Hector challenges one of the enemies to a personal duel. And after her father exchanges Cressida for a Trojan prisoner, the war becomes personal for her distraught lover Troilus.

      Jonathan Miller pitches his acclaimed production of this part-history, part-tragedy between satire and savage farce, highlighting Shakespeare’s cynical standpoint where love is mocked and heroism made absurd.


      -------------------------

      "In Troy there lies the scene. From Isles of Greece
      The princes orgulous, their high blood chafed,
      Have to the port of Athens sent their ships,
      Fraught with ministers and instruments
      Of cruel war. Sixty-and-nine, that wore
      their crownets, from th’Athenian bay . . .”

      Anton Lesser   Suzanne Burden
      Charles Gray
      Benjamin Whitrow
      and John Shrapnel

It also figures prominently in Virgil’s Aenid and Ovid’s Metamorphoses, both of which Shakespeare knew and used . . . Troilus and Cressida ,/b>shows how a war caused by one love affair destroys another.
