Welcome to Troy, USA, 1972, where tensions are high, draft cards are burning, and protests are rampant. A Chorus of historic activists and organizers guides us through this world premiere adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida, examining war, race, class, oppression, betrayal, and just how far we will go for love. Featuring striking imagery, soulful music, and a powerful multi-racial ensemble cast, Troy, USA marks the first major collaboration between playwrights Don Wilson Glenn and Dmae Roberts, and the third commission of Bag&Baggage Productions’ Problem Play Project, supported by the Meyer Memorial Trust, and directed by B&B Resident Artist Lawrence Siulagi. Additional sponsorship by Karl Citek and Patricia Logan.
This fully virtual production was filmed in a COVID-safe environment at The Vault Theater in the summer of 2021. You can stream the show on-demand anytime September 16-October 3, 2021, or join us for limited in-person screenings at The Vault; all screenings include a post-screening discussion with members of the Troy, USA creative team.
