From the Royal Shakespeare Company

The Taming of the Shrew

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 (Snow in Midsummer, The Jew of Malta) 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.
