This sparkling adaptation of Ustinov's stage success mixes laughter, romance and some rather eccentric politics in its story, loosely inspired by Shakespeare's play. But here the setting is Concordia and the rival 'families' are the Soviet Union and the USA.

Cecil Collins - Fools and Angels Cecil Collins is a visionary artist who has followed a lonely path outside mainstream modern art and its fads and fashions. His vision is now increasingly recognised, especially by many of the younger generation, on whom his work has made a deep impression.
Collins believes the sacred purpose of the artist is to remind mankind of a world above and beyond our everyday preoccupations. He paints images of the paradise he feels we have lost in a blind drive for technological mastery over nature.
Living with a vision is very difficult, but living without a vision is worse.'
