STRATFORD, ONT. — Late Canadian theatre legend Martha Henry's final performance is set to hit screens this month.
The Stratford Festival says its 2021 production of "Three Tall Women" starring Henry will be available for home viewing for a limited time.
The closing show was captured live just 12 days before Henry died of cancer last October at age 83 after more than half a century in the spotlight.
Stratford Festival artistic director Antoni Cimolino said Henry’s tour-de-force performance "is a potent distillation of her strength, fierce intelligence and boundless talent."
Barry Avrich directed the stage-to-screen adaptation, which premieres on CBC and CBC Gem on Oct. 16.
The show will also be available on the Stratford Festival's subscription-based streaming service for a year.
