The Taming Of The Shrew

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
12 Feb – 20 Feb 2011
By William Shakespeare
Directed By Derek Doddington

THE MOUND LAWN, MONA VALE GARDENS, CHRISTCHURCH

Continuing the tradition of bringing Shakespeare alive and accessible in the open air, Top Dog Theatre returns with a fine evening of Shakespearean entertainment and comedy.

Set within a dream, several stories are told simultaneously with interconnected, layered plots and sub-plots.

Baptista Minola refuses to allow his youngest daughter to be courted until her older sister, Kate, is safely wed. The problem being, that Kate is sharp-tongued, ill-tempered and shrewish. Although she has a considerable dowry, no suitors come to call on Kate – until Petruchio arrives on the scene.

In a hilarious tale, witness how one man tackles a shrew and how, against all odds, Petruchio and Kate find each other.
