Taming of the Shrew
Queensland Theatre presents
Taming of the Shrew

8 May 2021 to 5 Jun 2021

It's Lights! Camera! Action! on an Italian silent film set in a bygone era. The suitors are lining up to woo movie mogul Baptista’s enchanting film star daughter, Bianca. But there’s a catch: Bianca can’t marry until her elder sister is wed.

Enter Kate — bold, free and fierce, the last thing she wants or needs is a husband. Men conspire to marry this wild woman off to any man who will have her.

Enter Petruchio — Navy captain, in need of a wife. The stage is set for one of the most powerful clashes of wills in history.

With a sprinkle of old-time movie magic, director Damien Ryan rescues this classic love story from the clutches of controversy, by transporting it to a time when Kate is less of a problem and more of a promise of great women to come. This may not be the Shrew you were expecting, but it will be an irresistible night in the theatre filled with glamour, romance, song and laughter. And a plane.
