The Taming of the Shrew


Shakespeare's beloved comedy gets a new lease of life with an outdoor production at Dunham Massey this summer.

A Shakespearean play from the 1590s, 'The Taming Of The Shrew' follows two sisters, the mild-mannered and very marriable Bianca and the headstrong Katherina, as the latter is transformed into an obedient bride.

With more recent feminist readings of the classic script raising dialogues around issues such as patriarchal institutions and gender stereotyping, the play is perhaps even more relevant to audiences today as it ever has been.
