The Road to the Globe is an all access documentary which charts the historic performance of Shakespeare's Troilus & Cressida in Te Reo Mori 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's The Globe, issued a proclamation outlining the Worlds 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 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.

It also becomes obvious that Troilus and Cressida is a very poor choice for the Maoris. T&C is a sophisticated, city play even through it takes place in Troy. Macbeth or Henry VI, Part 3 would have been a more suitable vehicle for this rural culture.
I'm going to throw this DVD away. I'm not bothering to donate it because I don't want another Shakespeare lover to be deceived by this work
