The plays relevance has escalated since it was first performed, with its barbed commentary on the medias role in shaping our society being more incisive now than ever before. Translated into English by Petru Iamandi and Richard Wright, Cilincas Polonius reflects our world through a Shakespearean looking glass, the better to see it afresh.
