CBC Drama Special Romeo and Juliet

CBC Drama Special Romeo and Juliet

The excitement of live theatre comes to the screen in this special Stratford production of Shakespeare's classic love story. Romeo and Juliet meet and fall in love at a masked ball, but their love is doomed by an ancient and unreasonable grudge between their families. Stratford director Richard Monette has set the play in the time of Mussolini's Fascist Italy, giving added pathos to the senseless hatred perpetuated between two families. Spectacularly staged and beautifully costumed, this production stars Megan Porter Follows, known for Anne of Green Gables.
