The Taming Of The Shrew

Direct from Stratford-upon-Avon.

The RSC returns with a season of exhilarating Shakespeare plays bursting with contemporary resonance.

The Taming Of The Shrew is the ultimate battle of the sexes turned on its head in a fresh portrayal of gender politics. In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy.

Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.

Justin Audibert turns Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.
