Taming of the Shrew – Aug/Sep 2017

This is one of Shakespeare’s better known comedies, with a serious message about the place of Women in that society of the day! Lucentio arrives in Padua and falls for Bianca, who is being wooed by Hortensio and Gremio, older citizens. Baptisa Minola her father will not allow this until older sister the very shrewish Katherina is married, but who will marry her? She is eventually paired with Petruchio who tries very hard to tame her wilful ways. With characters changing roles, attempting to copy other characters, mistaken identity there is much fun to be had in this production. There are fantastic character parts in this very large cast play. Oh yes….. I will include the Christopher Sly scenes
