Availability information for this program

This documentary follows a group of amateur actors from a poor neighborhood in northwest London as they attempt to put on Shakespeare's most recognized play. Director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo & Juliet) oversees the hopeful actors as they go through intense rehearsals in order to ingrain within them the themes and significance of Shakespeare's play.
