The Taming of the Shrew

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 noblemen 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.

…a bundle of joy; this is pure, unadulterated bliss, ideal for a balmy summer’s evening… A greatly skilled and athletic team, playing fast, open, attacking theatre —Cambridge News
