THe taming of the shrew

"I see a woman may be made a fool
If she had not a spirit to resist." 
Act 3.2.

Kate must have a husband before her sister Bianca is wed; Petruchio is the man to tame her. With elaborate planning and chaotic execution, the suitors set the stage to tame a 'curst' shrew and win Bianca's hand.

With disorder, deception and disguise, ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ has all the makings of a classic Shakespearean comedy and yet, underpinned by misogyny and domestic abuse, contains some of the most hard-hitting themes of the canon. The EUSC’s 11th annual production will address these themes head-on in a frank, bold retelling of a controversial classic.

12th-16th March 2019 at 7:30pm 
Pleasance Theatre, Edinburgh
