RSC: The Taming Of The Shrew Tickets London

With a dash of inspiration from Naomi Alderman's novel The Power, Justin Audibert directs a revelatory new production of The Taming of the Shrew at the Barbican which is set in a matriarchal world, and features sumptuous Elizabethan costumes.

This radical take on Shakespeare’s energetic and fierce gender comedy centres on Baptista Minola who is seeking to marry off her sons, the sweet-tempered Bianco and the rebellious Katherine. Get ready for an explosive courtship and a witty portrayal of control and hierarchy.

This RSC production is kindly supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation.
