RSC's The Taming of the Shrew Information

The ultimate battle of the sexes is turned on its head in Justin Audibert's The Taming of the Shrew as the 1590s are reimagined - with women in charge.

In this radical take on Shakespeare's fierce and energetic comedy of gender, Baptista Minola is seeking to marry off her two sons, the sweet-tempered Bianco and the rebellious Katherine. Cue an explosive courtship and a keenly witty portrayal of hierarchy and power.

The RSC's London production of The Taming of the Shrew is kindly supported by Cockayne - Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation.
