‘To ransack Troy, within whose strong immures / The ravished Helen, Menelaus’ queen, / With wanton Paris sleeps, and that’s the quarrel.’
It is seven years into the Trojan war, the Greeks have sailed to Troy to reclaim Menelaus’ wife Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world. But now Achilles, a demigod and the Greek’s best hope for victory, is refusing to fight. Meanwhile within the walls of Troy, the Trojan prince Troilus has fallen in love with a young girl named Cressida.
