Troilus & Cressida


BBC presents the classic play by William Shakespeare. Suzanne Burden and Anton Lesser take the title roles in Jonathan Miller's production of the classic Shakespeare play. The seven-year siege of Troy by Greek forces has reached stalemate. The Trojan King has carried off Helen, wife of Menelaus the Greek King and Achilles refuses to fight in order to secure her return. Into this setting comes the story of two young lovers, Troilus and Cressida, and that of Cressida's betrayal.
