PSIP Description: 
New Zealand actor Rawiri Paratene forms his own company and prepares to adapt a Shakespeare play.
Long Description: 
In 2010, the home of Shakespeare - The Globe Theatre in London, England - issued a proclamation outlining the world's biggest Shakespearean festival: 36 countries, 36 Shakespearean plays, 36 languages. New Zealand actor Rawiri Paratene answered the call and was given the honor to open the festival. Spanning the twelve-week period before Opening Night, ROAD TO THE GLOBE follows Rawiri as he forms his own company, Ngakau Toa, consisting of New Zealand's best Maori actors, and their journey as they prepare to take their Maori adaption of William Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida to The Globe.
