The Taming Of The Shrew

A part of the 2019/2020 season at the SAM WANAMAKER PLAYHOUSE is THE TAMING OF THE SHREW.

katharina and Bianca, the daughters of a rich man of Padua, are ready to marry. The game is simple: the youngest can be won only if the eldest finds her equal. But Katharina is strong-willed and not afraid to challenge the rules.

Who will be able to rival her? The hunt is on.

Accompanied by live music and song in the unique and intimate setting of the candlelit Sam Wanamaker PlayhouseTHE TAMING OF THE SHREW questions the essence of Man and Woman, the feminine and the masculine, and searches for answers in the realm of the wondrous.

Thy husband is they lord,
 thy life, thy keeper
-Act V, scene 2.
