The Aquila Theatre Company breathes fresh life into one of Shakespeare's most famous comedies.
Set in the idyllic town of Padua, The Taming of the Shrew tells the story of the timeless battle of the sexes. Bianca, beautiful daughter of a lord, is eligible for marriage but cannot be courted until her elder sister, Katherina, finds a husband. Katherina's quick temper and acerbic wit, however, frighten off all suitors. Two suitors to Bianca hire a newcomer named Petruchio to seduce and "tame" Katherina. Famed for its linguistic acrobatics, The Taming of the Shrew stands as one of Shakespeare's sharpest and funniest scripts.
