I see a woman may be made a fool. If she had not a spirit to resist The Taming of the Shrew

- Homerton College Gardens

The Taming of the Shrew is Shakespeare’s quintessential battle-of-the-sexes comedy! Baptista has two daughters that need to be married off – Bianca; docile, beautiful and much sought after by the noble men of the town, and Katherine; ill-tempered and shrewish, with an acid tongue that no man can tame. As the oldest, Katherine must marry first – not that she much cares. Bianca’s many suitors can’t afford to wait, so in a wild scheme to find a husband for Katherine, they convince the wily Petruchio to take on the challenge.

I loved the inventiveness and imagination of this highly original production —Cambridge Evening News
