The Taming of the Shrew

Live on stage, one of Shakespeare’s sharpest and funniest scripts

The Taming of the Shrew

About The Show

Performed by the The Aquila Theatre Company, Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew tells a timeless battle-of-the-sexes story. Bianca, beautiful daughter of a lord, is eligible for marriage but cannot be courted until her elder sister, Katherina, finds a husband. Katherina’s quick temper and acerbic wit, however, frighten off all suitors. Two suitors to Bianca hire a newcomer named Petruchio to seduce and “tame” Katherina. Petruchio succeeds in dragging Katharina to the altar then away to his country home where the taming begins. Famed for its linguistic acrobatics, The Taming of the Shrew stands as one of Shakespeare’s sharpest and funniest scripts.
