"Troy is besieged by the invading Greeks, but the young Trojan prince Troilus can think only of his love for Cressida. Her uncle Pandarus brings the two together, but after only one night news comes that Cressida must be sent to the enemy camp. There, as Troilus looks on, she yields to the wooing of the Greek Diomedes. The heroic action of the Trojan War story is undercut by the commentary of Thersites, who provides a cynical chorus to this dark and brilliant play"--Container.
