Cressida Among the Greeks takes place during the last days of the Trojan War. The story of the doomed lovers is woven together with the foibles of the Trojan royal family as they try to stave off impending disaster. Cressida among the Greeks takes off from Shakespeare and Chaucer, revisting Trolius and Cressida, the classsic tale of love and betrayal amid the chaos of war, with romantic passion and acerbic humor.
