The Taming Of The Shrew - Royal Shakespeare Company

The ultimate battle of the sexes is turned on its head in this ‘deftly provocative and exuberantly entertaining’ (The Times) production in which the 1590s are reimagined – with women in charge.

Katharina and Bianca, the daughters of a rich man of Padua, are ready to marry. The game is simple: the youngest can be won only if the eldest finds her equal. But Katharina is strong-willed and not afraid to challenge the rules. Who will be able to rival her? The hunt is on.

Accompanied by live music and song in the unique and intimate setting of the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, The Taming of the Shrew questions the essence of Man and Woman, the feminine and the masculine, and searches for answers in the realm of the wondrous.

In an exciting and experimental production, roles for The Taming of the Shrew are to be played by different company members at different performances.
