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.


Lloyd Hutchinson (Petruchio), Tanya Ronder (Katherina), Joseph Alessi, John Branwell, Nick Cavaliere, Peter Collins, Guy Hargreaves, Robert Pickavance, Phoebe Soteriades, Susan Twist, Toby Sedgwick, Simon Roberts, David Williams, Marc Parry, Orla Cottingham
