Shakespeare’s outrageous comedy THE TAMING OF THE SHREW introduces one of theatre’s great screwball double-acts, a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to the play’s controversial conclusion. Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, ‘shrewish’ Katherina? Perhaps the gold-digging Petruchio, as maddeningly strong-willed and perverse as Katherina herself, will be equal to the task of bullying her to the altar. This production will suit young and old alike. An excellent introduction to Shakespeare for the novice, and an fast-paced and exciting adaptation for those familiar with play.
