The Cyprus Project

In the summer of 1974 on the small island of Cyprus a fragile peace between inhabitants came to an abrupt and violent end. Caught in the middle were United Nations Peacekeeping Forces which included Canadian soldiers.

William Shakespeare’s searing tale of race, jealousy and revenge is set against the backdrop of recent history when, in 1974, Canadian peacekeepers are caught in a life or death struggle on the small island of Cyprus.
