Taming Of The Shrew

Shakespearean dating reimagined

"Shakespeare as it should be done: with an open mind and lots of heart."

- Plays To See
Adapted and directed by Ross McGregor, this is play gives Shakespeare's tale of the courtship between Petruchio and Katherina a little spin. - Housed at a stunning 104-year-old theatre in South West London - Staged as a play within a play, this version of the Taming Of The Shrew features a full cast gender inversion that flips the whole story on its head - "…impeccably retells Shakespeare imaginatively, resourcefully and with a newfound will to make it accessible to new generations…their productions are at once enticing, engaging and exciting, even to the old hats." – A Younger Theatre This is a fiery, visceral and brutal comedy about a scathing sexual war of attrition. Recreating Shakespeare is a bold move but when is comes to fruition it's a real spectacle. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
