The Taming of the Shrew

This sharp and witty battle of the sexes, set in the stunning gardens of King’s College, tells the tale of Petruchio, the world-weary bachelor and the unlikely courtship of the free-spirited Kate, and charts their unlikely course to true love. Not for the faint-hearted!

...polished performances all round ...lively and inspired ...a production well worth seeing —The Times
