The Taming of the Shrew


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Free open-air theatre.

"The Pantaloons like to keep Shakespeare accessible as we believe good quality theatre should be easily available to everyone," says Caitlin Storey.

"We have taken Shakespeare away from the confines of a theatrical space and injected the fun and playful nature that would have been an important element back in the 1600s."

Everyone wants to marry the beautiful Bianca, but her father will not let her wed until someone is man enough to take on the challenge of wooing his eldest daughter, the Shrewish Kate. Is the boorish, sexist swash buckler Petruchio up to the challenge? And the question remains, can a Shrew ever really be Tamed?! A hilarious twist on one of Shakespeare's finest comedies; chaos ensues as just five actors play over thirty parts, with plenty of music, audience interaction and surprises.
