The EDGE info

Paris, son of King Priam of Troy has stolen Helen - wife of King Menelaus of Greece provoking a war which has dragged on for 7 years. Within this insidious terrain, two young lovers Troilus and Cressida are brought together and as such torn apart as their new found love is tested in the field of war. Meanwhile the challenge is laid down for the legend of Achilles and Hector to run its course…

The Aotea Square will be the Auckland venue for a very special theatrical season from March 22 – 24, 2012 when Shakespeare’s story of Troilus and Cressida is brought to life as a full length Te Reo Maori production.

New Zealand audiences will be treated to the performance before Ngakau Toa take to the international stage in April when they perform at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London as part of the Globe to Globe Festival, an extraordinary event that will present 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 37 languages.

Entry is by koha with all proceeds going towards assisting the company’s production at The Globe.

A scene by scene synopsis in English of The Maori Troilus and Cressida will be available for audience members at the show.

This production is proudly supported by Te Waka Toi-Creative New Zealand, Te Puni Kokiri, Te Taura Whiri, Shakespeare Globe Theatre, NZ International Arts Festival, The Edge, Arts Alive Auckland City Council, Wellington City Council and Tangata Whenua.com.
