RSC Live: Troilus and Cressida (12A)

RSC's production of Troilus and Cressida

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.
