About The Taming of The Shrew

Elizabethan England, 1590.

Women hold the power, control the state and own the property. In a society where men have no authority, Lady Baptista is selling off her two sons to the highest bidder.

Bianco is the perfect son; handsome and well-mannered, he has no end of suitors. His older brother Katherine, on the other hand, is wild and waspish – can this shrewish man be tamed?

Director Justin Audibert turns Shakespeare’s fierce comedy of gender politics, The Taming of the Shrew, on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.
