SSITP's Troilus and Cressida

By Syracuse Shakespeare-In-The-Park (other events)

6 Dates Through Jun 13, 2021
 
ABOUT ABOUT

Start with the background of Homer's epic Iliad as Shakespeare puts you in the middle of the Trojan War between Greece and Troy.  Because it encompasses so many genres it is the least classfiable Shakepsearean play.  Is it a tragedy? heroic? satrical? farcical? comical?  All of them rolled into one play.                                                                                                                 

Troilus and Cressida is a love story that is set during conflict. It is a microcosm of reality.  We as people aspire to love and value it beyond measure.  Yet, love is put aside in pursuit of survival.  People feed their basic instincts over their nobler aspirations.  It is sad and tragic that love does not triumph.  The play reminds us that although we cherish certain values, at times, we must put them aside in order to live.                                                                                           

Please join us as this epic play unfolds before your eyes in Thornden Park's Amphitheatre.  You will be seated in the six rings, socially distanced and the actors will be on the grass right in front of you.  Intimate but safe in the beautiful open air of the Amphitheatre.
