Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, shrewish Katherina? Only the gold-digging Petruchio, a man as maddeningly strong-willed and perverse as Katherina herself, is equal to the task of bullying her to the altar.



Shakespeareís most outrageous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew introduces one of theatreís great screwball double-acts, a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to the playís equivocal and controversial conclusion.
