Royal Shakespeare Live presents

RSC Live: The Taming of the Shrew

Wednesday 5th June, 7.00pm

In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son 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.

“Deftly provocative and exuberantly entertaining” ★★★★ THE TIMES

“Beautiful…revelatory…wonderful” ★★★★ WHATSONSTAGE

“Justin Audibert’s RSC production extracts every laugh from the subplot” ★★★★ THE SUNDAY TIMES
