Rude Mechs presents Fixing Troilus and Cressida
Kirk Lynn is drafting another Fixing Shakespeare play, this time setting his sights on fixing Troilus and Cressida, making William Shakespeare’s least produced works useful again, offering authentic experience of what a new Shakespeare play might be like than an actual Shakespeare play.
Troilus is seriously digging Cressida, Cressida is deep into Troilus, but nobody knows how to seal the deal with the ole flirt’n’woo these days. Plus there’s a war going on. The Trojan War. HIStory always blames Helen, but really, what’s with the damn patriarchy always swagging-round with two big helmets and a swollen reputation? Will Troilus and Cressida get it together and get together? Will a one-on-one epic gladiator-battle-to-the-death decide the Trojan War? And will that that battle keep the lovers apart forever?
