THE TAMING OF THE SHREW opens at Shakespeare's Globe - with Simon Startin

June 21, 2024
THE TAMING OF THE SHREW is now playing at Shakespeare's Globe - featuring Simon Startin as Baptista.

Following 2022’s ‘brilliantly provocative’ ★★★★ (The Guardian) Titus Andronicus, Director Jude Christian debuts 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 Katharina is wedded, the competition to mould the fiercely independent Katharina into obedient wifely material begins.

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

Playing until October 26th.
