Performance Details - Troilus and Cressida
Davies/Koltai, Royal Shakespeare Company, June 1985
"Ralph Koltai's beautiful baroque ruin - grey speckled like a grotesque vulture's egg and hung with rotting canvasses and the spectral drapes of Brobdignagian removal men - serves as a war room and battleground for Greeks and Trojans alike. The two sides are discernable by the rusty red hussar trappings for the Trojans and Confederate grey for the Greeks." Ros Asquith, Observer 30.6.85
