The Taming Of The Shrew
"A thoroughly authentic production, impressive and absorbing"
PLAYS INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINE
Folksy Theatre presents Shakespeare's hilarious comedy, The Taming Of The Shrew. Baptista Minola is attempting to marry off his two daughters; however, he will not marry off his youngest, the fair Bianca, until her elder sister, the ill-tempered Katherine, has found a husband. When the brave and lusty young nobleman, Petruccio comes to town, Bianca’s suiters are elated to learn that he intends to take on the challenge of taming and marrying Kate. But will Petruccio succeed in taming the wild and witty shrew?
Filled with Folksy's wonderful live music, bold characters and downright silliness, this hilarious production is not to be missed!
