The Taming of the Shrew - First Encounter: Shakespeare for Young Audiences archiveTwo 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. Shakespeare's outrageous comedy introduces one of the theatre's great screwball double-acts, a couple hellbent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to its controversial conclusion. This 2 hour 10 minute rollercoaster has boys playing girls and girls playing boys to tell the story of two people's crazy journey towards becoming the perfect match. Including an introduction to the performance and a chance to hear from the actors afterwards, First Encounter: The Taming of the Shrew uses a distilled version of the original text to create the perfect first experience of Shakespeare for 8-13 year olds.
