SPECIAL: Shakespeare's Helen of Troy, a Conversation About Troilus and Cressida
Listen now
Description
Liv speaks with Danielle LaRose of Tiger's Hearts Collective, an all woman theatre company performing Troilus and Cressida (virtually) on May 25th for #CanadaPerforms. We talk Shakespeare, women in theatre, feminism, mythology, and Homer in general. And, of course, all about Shakespeare's interpretation of the Trojan War and all its heroes: Troilus and Cressida. The (shortened) play will be performed at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern on May 25th. Visit: https://nac-cna.ca/en/event/26631 for how and when to watch. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault.
