The Taming of the Shrew 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. 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.


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)
