The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

Shakespeare's Globe · 13 MAY - 07 AUG

And whilst Bianca has no shortage of offers, who will get hitched to Kate, the fabulous and ungovernable shrew? Perhaps Petruchio might take her on for a bet: he’s a bit of a gold-digger and as wild and rebellious as our Kate...
