Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Road to the Globe is an ‘all access’ documentary which charts the historic performance of Shakespeare’s Troilus & Cressida in Te Reo M?ori by Rawiri Paratene’s theatre company at the Globe in 2012.

In 2010, with the coming of the 2012 Olympic Games, the home of Shakespeare – The Globe, issued a proclamation outlining the World’s biggest Shakespearean festival: 36 countries, 36 Shakespearean Plays, 36 languages.

Rawiri Paratene answered the call and was duly given Shakespeare’s little known Troilus & Cressida.

To raise the stakes, Rawiri and his theatre company were also charged with opening the festival.

The Road to the Globe follows Rawiri and theatre director Rachel
Read more House throughout the rehearsal period, where we meet key cast members and watch them confront their fears, struggle with lines and moves and ultimately lift each other up to face their Opening Curtain.
