The Taming of the Shrew

The University of Warwick Shakespeare Society presents a FREE performance of The Taming of the Shrew in the Capital Centre Studio.

Kate, a feisty, outspoken, impatient 'shrew' is to be tamed by lion-tamer Petruchio in order for her younger sister, the virtuous and beautiful Bianca, to marry one of her many suitors.

In this adventurous and creative version of The Taming of the Shrew, be prepared to watch the world of the Shrew be transformed as she enters a realm of circus trickery, carnival darkness, and a marriage marked by the cage she is placed in by her husband.

Saturday: 2pm and 8pm
Location: CAPITAL Centre
