The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew


A contentious yet tender tale of sexual politics, Shakespeare’s unconventional romance tells the vibrant tale of a mismatched and combative couple in a memorable and comical mix of comedy, romance and razor-sharp wit.

Everyone wants to marry Bianca but no suitor can be found for Independent and feisty, Kate.  Enter Petruchio, a gamester on the make who surprises them both with a most extraordinary courtship in this electric battle of the sexes!

Brought to life with Heartbreak’s hallmark elements of live music, humour, and audience interaction, this outdoor adaptation explores how two people come to know each other and understand what is needed to create the “perfect” marriage.  A sparkling and interactive performance, it provides a fresh perspective for Shakespeare fans but serves too as a perfect introduction for new audiences of all ages.
