Royal Shakespeare Company: The Taming Of The Shrew

This event has passed

IN A REIMAGINED 1590, ENGLAND IS A MATRIARCHY.

Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder.
Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.

Justin Audibert turns Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.

Direct from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company returns to the Lowry with a season of exhilarating Shakespeare plays bursting with contemporary resonance.

Join us for one, join us for all. It’s going to be quite a season.
