This first staging in Ukraine of one of the most mysterious Shakespearean plays was directed by the well-known British director Jonathan Banatwala (Moving Theatre). The cast included prominent Ukrainian actors: Ostap Stupka, Akhtem Seitablaev, Sergiy Siplivy, Olena Svirska and Valentyn Boyko.

We need to change the attitude of indifference towards our culture’s development and start acting to help us become a strong prosperous state. Our firm has been actively supporting Ukrainian and international art projects for a long time. We are proud to be involved in the realisation of the theatre project “Troilus and Cressida” which appeals to the eternal and relevant issue of our time: the conflict between nations, families and people. I am sure that such a vivid large-scale project will not leave Ukrainians indifferent,” said Anna Ogrenchuk.
