The Taming Of The Shrew

An exhilarating retelling of Shakespeare’s dark comedy

“The kind of energy and enthusiasm that Shakespeare thrives upon.”

- Time Out
Social absurdities are turned on their head, to glorious comic effect in this version of The Taming Of The Shrew, where the men are to be tamed and the women do the taming… As part of a month long festival at the arts investigating evolving relations between minority groups and the theatre – with a focus on gender, race and disability – this unique production sees the main characters switch sex, in a world where the women hold the power and the men are "advantageously wed". A hilariously disorienting exploration that breathes new life into to this darkest of Shakespearean comedies. “...this exuberant production gives this well-loved comedy a sparkling freshness.” What’sOnStage on Twelfth Night Seating is unreserved.
