CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
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. 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. The Taming of the Shrew continues our work with, and for, young people and follows our recent productions of Hamlet and The Comedy of Errors.Performers Madeline Appiah (Katharina), Jamie Beamish (Christopher Sly), Caroline Martin (Baptista), Jason Morell (Grumio/Gremio), Nikesh Patel (Petruchio), Emily Plumtree (Bianca), David Mcgranaghan (Lucentio), Daniel Percival (Tranio), Daniel Rose (Hortensio).
