The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Valerie Rachelle

June 19 - September 7, 2024
Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
The bold, spirited, and headstrong Katherina is deemed unworthy of marriage while suitors pursue her younger sister Bianca. Their father refuses to let his younger daughter marry until an appropriate match is made for the elder, which Petruchio accepts as a challenge. However, Katherina will not be tamed so easily. Their dastardly deeds and heated battles hurl this comedy toward its end. And in Petruchio’s journey to make Katherina a compliant and obedient bride, they both learn more about what being an equal partner really means.

Content Advisory

Shakespeare’s most often performed play at the Festival, with Kate’s character being one of his most memorable women, it contains sexual puns and innuendo and themes of domestic abuse and misogyny but is suitable for most audiences.
