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.
