Lazarus to Bring THE TAMING OF THE SHREW to Jack Studio Theatre This Summer
Lazarus Theatre's Season of Legacy continues with Shakespeare's witty and playful, yet dark and dangerous, The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare, adapted by Sara Reimers.
The production runs Tuesday 18 July to Saturday 5 August 2017, with Press Night on Thursday 20 July 2017.
Kate talks too much; at least, that's what the men of Padua think. So they persuade Petruchio to marry her and bring his wilful wife to heel.
Part farce, and part tragedy, The Taming of the Shrew dramatises society's attempt to control and one woman's bid to resist.
Shakespeare's witty problem play hits the stage in an all-new ensemble production, using text, movement and a contemporary score. This is Shrew not to be missed.
"Continuing our season that explores legacy and the plays that changed the theatrical and wider world as a whole, we turn to Shakespeare for his formidable "problem play" The Taming of the Shrew. We are also excited that Shrew shall mark the Lazarus Directorial debut of Sara Reimers, our long-standing Dramaturge and Associate Director. This Shrew is modern, fast paced and full of revolutionary spirit," says Ricky Dukes, Artistic Director.
