Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew is the quintessential battle-of-the-sexes comedy! Baptista has two daughters that need to be married off – Bianca; docile, beautiful and much sought after by the noble men of the town, and Katherine; ill-tempered and shrewish, with an acid tongue that no man can tame. As the oldest, Katherine must marry first – not that she much cares. Bianca’s many suitors can’t afford to wait, so in a wild scheme to find a husband for Katherine, they convince the wily Petruchio to take on the challenge of domesticating the willful “shrew.” Can Petruchio subdue Katherine’s temper and win her bountiful dowry, or will she continue her shrewish ways?
