General Description

This play describes the volatile courtship between Kate and Petruchio. Audiences have always delighted in the robust comedy and verbal inventiveness of The Taming of the Shrew. The rapid-fire volley of insults and slurs that Kate and Petruchio hurl at each other throughout the opening scenes are as entertaining as anything Shakespeare ever wrote. And yet they also reveal the abiding tensions between men and women and the treacherous terrain lovers must sometimes cross in their courtship rituals to reach fulfillment.
