Simon Startin in THE TAMING OF THE SHREW at Shakespeare's Globe

May 6, 2024
Simon Startin has been cast as Baptista in THE TAMING OF THE SHREW at Shakespeare's Globe, directed by Jude Christian.

Following 2022’s ‘brilliantly provocative’ ★★★★ (The Guardian) Titus Andronicus, Director Jude Christiandebuts in the Globe Theatre with Shakespeare’s playful yet challenging early comedy that asks us where we draw the line between entertainment and complicity, reality and the absurd?

Lucentio is determined to win the beautiful Bianca’s hand in marriage. When her father declares that it will only happen once her older sister Katherina is wedded, the competition to mould the fiercely independent Katherina into obedient wifely material begins.

The front runner is larger-than-life Petruchio. But with Katherina as proud as she is, it’s going to take shocking levels of manipulation to win her as his bride…

Casting by Becky Paris.

Playing from June 6th - October 26th.
