About

Britain’s esteemed Royal Shakespeare Company presents a “revelatory and wonderfully entertaining” (The Daily Telegraph) rarity: Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy The Taming of the Shrew performed in repertory with its uproarious and irreverent sequel, The Tamer Tamed, written by his contemporary John Fletcher. Perhaps the most famous play ever written about the battle of the sexes, The Taming of the Shrew pits Petruchio’s persistent wooing against Kate’s spirited opposition, resulting in a comic melee of wits and wills. In the recently rediscovered The Tamer Tamed, Petruchio gets married a second time and a sidesplitting struggle for conjugal dominance begins once again. Olivier Award-winning RSC Associate Director Gregory Doran directs RSC veterans Alexandra Gilbreath (Romeo and Juliet) and Jasper Britton (Antony and Cleopatra) in both productions.
