The Taming of the Shrew archivePetruchio is a woman who isn't afraid of a challenge. Which is just as well because her latest task is to tame a beautiful but waspish boy called Kate. But Kate isn't going to make it easy for her... Has Petruchio bitten off more than she can chew? Turning Shakespeare's original upside down, Jo Clifford's razor sharp new version of The Taming of the Shrew invites us to imagine a world in which women hold all the power. Stepping into this world helps us understand our own, a world in which the patriarchy is being challenged and new possibilities abound. Get ready for a bawdy and riotous take on a contentious classic.
