    Troilus and Cressida - Fear and Loathing in Ancient Troy

    26:53

    Troilus and Cressida is a problem play in more ways than one. Its tone veers wildly between comedy and tragedy and there are no easy resolutions. But it is also a dazzling work with Shakespeare being more truthful and cynical about the human condition than at any other stage in his career. In this episode, Ben Lawrence returns to the play. He is in conversation with Gregory Doran, artistic director of the RSC, who also directs the new production at Stratford upon Avon (which runs from October 12 to November 17), and with the academic and writer James Shapiro whose long list of acclaimed works includes William Shakespeare: 1606, and the Year of Lear.   See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Behind the scenes of Troilus and Cressida

    24:05

    The Telegraph's Ben Lawrence goes behind the scenes of the RSC's new production of Troilus and Cressida. This is one of Shakespeare's most complex and fascinating plays, a version of events leading up to the death of Hector in the Trojan War, and raising issues about self-image and self-worth, the disappointment of love and the frailty of human nature. This new production, with music by acclaimed percussionist Evelyn Glennie, has a 50/50 gender split. Ben talks to Gregory Doran, Artistic Director of the RSC, and to the two actors playing its title characters, Gavin Fowler and Amber James.

    Does Shakespeare silence women?

    32:25

    In this edition, Claire Allfree questions the role of women in Shakespeare and whether he gives them a voice.  Does descending into madness make victims of Ophelia and Lady Macbeth? Why do Queen Anne and Princess Katherine go silent as soon as they are married? And what on earth should 21st-century audiences make of Katherina in The Taming of the Shrew? Joining Claire in the discussion are acclaimed actors Sylvestra le Touzel and Debbie Korley, and director Nancy Meckler.  See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
