The Taming of the Shrew

Turning Shakespeare's original upside down, Jo Clifford's new version of The Taming of the Shrew is a bawdy and riotous take where the patriarchy is being challenged and new possibilities abound!

The Taming of the Shrew

About The Taming of the Shrew

Petruchio is a woman who isn’t afraid of a challenge. Which is just as well because her latest task is to tame a beautiful but waspish boy called Kate. But Kate isn’t going to make it easy for her…Has Petruchio bitten off more than she can chew?

Turning Shakespeare’s original upside down, Jo Clifford’s razor-sharp new version of The Taming of the Shrew invites us to imagine a world in which women hold the power. Stepping into this world helps us understand our own, a world in which the patriarchy is being challenged and new possibilities abound. Get ready for a bawdy and riotous take on a contentious classic.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Taming of the Shrew are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
