The Taming of the Shrew- RSC Encore Screening

King's Court Theatre, King William's College, Isle of Man, IM91TP
Wed 3rd July 2019


In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her daughter Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.


Justin Audibert (Snow in Midsummer, The Jew of Malta) turns Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.


Running Time: 2 hours 30 minutes, including one 20 minute interval
