The Training of the Shrew
is giving a big shake-up of the re-telling of Shakespeare’s the Taming
of the Shrew. In this version Kate is a feisty modern girl who gets
Pete’s no slouch and provides the background for Kate to bounce against.
script is a great challenge for three energetic actors to take on,
staged as it is, in a kind of Punch and Judy fairground setting.
The production zips along with plenty of zing!
A great way to introduce students to modern telling of Shakespeare through one of Shakespeare’s major comedies.
