The Stratford Adventure

Top of page

How a small Canadian city, bearing the name of Stratford and by a river Avon, realized the vision of one of its sons: the creation of a theatre for the staging of the finest Shakespearean drama. The film tells how the idea grew, how a famous British director, internationally known stars and Canadian talent were recruited, and how the Stratford Shakespearean Festival finally became a triumphant reality.
