The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

Production Placeholder
RSC's Playing Shakespeare productions are created for young people. This is an opportunity to attend a full-scale, fast-paced 90 minute performance within the glory of the Globe Theatre, the architecture for which Shakespeare wrote.

The Taming of the Shrew is a story of sibling rivalry, perceptions and expectations of women and the power of fathers and husbands; themes that are still strongly relevant to today’s teenagers. The performance is guaranteed to leave children and adults alike buzzing with the thrill of live theatre.

SYNOPSIS: A wandering braggart out to marry for money ends up with the shrewish daughter of a rich man, whom he must "tame" even as he falls for her, in William Shakespeare's comedy.
