In an intriguing and exhilarating twist on Shakespeare’s renowned dark comedy, the social absurdities of The Taming Of The Shrew are turned on their head to glorious comic effect, as men are to be tamed – and the women do the taming.

As part of a month long festival at the Arts Theatre investigating evolving relations between minority groups and the theatre – with a focus on gender, race and disability – this unique production sees the main characters switch sex, in a world where the women hold the power and the men are ‘advantageously wed’.

A hilariously disorienting exploration that breathes new life into to this darkest of Shakespearean comedies.
