Not True, But Useful
Series 3, Episode 8:
Troilus and Cressida

Episode Home | Podcast Home | Episodes

In Episode 8, Declan and Nick discuss Troilus and Cressida, Shakespeare’s scathing anti-war satire on glory, chivalry and doomed love. Find out why the play is possibly the most un-Shakespearean of Shakespeare’s plays, the dangers of ‘truth’, and the importance of reserving one’s judgment when approaching a work of art.

The music in this episode was composed by Paddy Cunneen for The Winter’s Tale (2016-17)
