The Last Days of TroyModel and actress Lily Cole takes on Helen of Troy in The Last Days of Troy, a new piece of writing by award-winning poet and novelist Simon Armitage which dramatises the end of the Trojan siege. Based on Homer's Iliad, the play at Shakespeare's Globe dramatises and completes the narrative of the original text bringing the siege of Troy to its bloody conclusion. It's directed by Nick Bagnall, designed by Ashley Martin Davies and composed by Alex Baranowski and is one of four new plays for the Globe in 2014, continuing the theatre's support of new writing. Each of the four plays - with Armitage joined by playwrights Richard Bean, Howard Brenton and David Eldridge in creating new work - will focus on a different war from history.

 

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
