A live performance of Shakespeare's battle of the sexes comedy, recorded at the reconstructed Globe Theatre in 2012. The production features, among others, Michael Bertenshaw, Pearce Quigley and Samantha Spiro.
Two wealthy sisters in Padua are to be married. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, 'shrewish' Katherina? Perhaps the gold-digging Petruchio, as maddeningly strongwilled and perverse as Katherina herself, will be equal to the task of bullying her to the altar.
Shakespeare’s outrageous comedy introduces one of the theatre’s great screwball double-acts, a couple hellbent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to its controversial conclusion.
