Taming of the Shrew in the Masters Garden Corpus Christi College

"The world renowned Shakespeare’s Globe will perform Shakespeare's comedy, The Taming of the Shrew this summer.

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

Direct from the Globe and performed on an Elizabethan-style stage with an all-female cast, a small troupe of travelling players breathe new life into Shakespeare’s outrageous comedy. Starring one of theatre’s great screwball double-acts, a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to its controversial conclusion..:  Book tickets on the Cambridge Arts Theatre website
