WORLD PREMIERE PERFORMANCES

A NEW VERSION BY JO CLIFFORD

Petruchio is a woman who isn’t afraid of a challenge. Which is just as well because her latest task is to tame a beautiful but waspish boy called Kate. But Kate isn’t going to make it easy for her…Has Petruchio bitten off more than she can chew?

Turning Shakespeare’s original upside down, Jo Clifford’s razor-sharp new version of The Taming of the Shrew invites us to imagine a world in which women hold the power. Stepping into this world helps us understand our own, a world in which the patriarchy is being challenged and new possibilities abound. Get ready for a bawdy and riotous take on a contentious classic.

Do you still think men are fit to govern us?
And after centuries of misuse, misuse from them,
Thousands upon thousands of years
Years of injustice, oppression, ill treatment, suffering
So we hardly dare imagine any other way,
What shall we do? Shall we be nice?
We must be strong. And in the end
We’ll tame them, every single one.

Written by Jo Clifford
Directed by Michael Fentiman
