Publisher's Summary

This is a plain English and abridged adaptation of Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida. The play is set towards the end of the Trojan War, and loosely follows sections of the Iliad. The play combines two key plotlines: the romance between Troilus and Cressida, and the ongoing Trojan war. This adaptation simplifies Shakespeare's language, but retains the key elements of his play. This is theatrical production by a full cast. 

Troilus and Cressida is often described as one of Shakespeare's problem plays, and features a tragic ending. The play itself also contains comic aspects, but also shares elements with many of Shakespeare's tragedies. It has been described as "that most vexing and ambiguous of Shakespeare's plays", and perhaps among the most modern of the Shakespeare canon. This production is abridged, containing the key elements and characters of the play, and running just over 20 minutes long. This makes it a useful introduction to Shakespeare, possibly for a younger audience, too, though some themes of the play are dark. Part of the plain English Shakespeare series of audiobooks.
