Shakespeare’s Globe
By William Shakespeare 

‘Why, there’s a wench! Come on, and kiss me, Kate.’
Petruchio, Act 5, Scene 1

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’ Kate? Perhaps the gold-digging Petruchio, as maddeningly strong-willed and perverse as Kate herself, will be equal to the task of bullying her to the altar.

Shakespeare’s outrageous comedy introduces one of theatre’s great screwball double-acts, a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to its controversial conclusion.

The running time is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes with one interval
