The Porters of Hellsgate present Troilus & Cressida

The most recent edition of Arden Shakespeare, beautifully introduced and edited by David Bevington, states that Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida is “hard to fit into the usual Shakespearean categories – comedy, history, tragedy, romance – ‘because it has so many elements of all four’ … an experimental play, characterized throughout by an intermingling of mode, tone, genre and style.” The Porters of Hellsgate have chosen this rarely produced and beautifully diverse “problem” play as the opener of their sixth season, to be directed by Artistic Director Charles Pasternak. The task ahead is a great one, and it is an undeniably exciting endeavor…

Troilus and Cressida opens Friday, January 13, 2012 and will run Friday and
Saturday nights at 8pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm, at The Whitmore Theatre in North Hollywood for six weeks, closing Sunday, February 19. For more information go to
