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.
