    Fixing Troilus and Cressida

    Kirk Lynn is drafting another Fixing Shakespeare play. This time his site is set on Fixing Troilus and Cressida, and we are presenting two staged readings. Get in on the ground floor! Tell us what you think!

    Warning — lots of F-bombs!

    Here's what we can say so far: Troilus is seriously digging Cressida, Cressida is deep into Troilus, but nobody knows how to seal the deal with the ole flirt’n’woo these days. Plus there’s a war going on. The Trojan War. HIStory always blames Helen, but really, what's with the damn patriarchy always swagging-round with two big helmets and a swollen reputation? Will Troilus and Cressida get it together and get together? Will a one-on-one epic gladiator-battle-to-the-death decide the Trojan War? And will that that battle keep the lovers apart forever? You gotta be there to find out. Fixing Shakespeare makes William Shakespeare’s least produced works useful again. Ask yourself how many Shakespeare plays you know or have seen, subtract that number from thirty-seven (depending on who you ask), and those are the plays we are working to fix using our patented performance creation methodology, contemporary English, and adding curse words. (Shakespeare cursed plenty, but most Elizabethan curse words have lost their spice. Zounds!)

    In some ways, we’re offering you a more authentic experience of what a new Shakespeare play might be like than an actual Shakespeare play. In other ways, not so much.
