Reviews.co.uk rating

In this radical take on Shakespeare’s fierce and energetic comedy of gender, Baptista Minola is seeking to marry off her two sons, the sweet-tempered Bianco and the rebellious Katherine. Cue an explosive courtship and a keenly witty portrayal of hierarchy and control.

Taking inspiration from the novel The Power by Naomi Alderman, Justin Audibert directs a revelatory The Taming of the Shrew, set in a matriarchal world, with sumptuous Elizabethan costumes.

The RSC’s London production of The Taming of the Shrew is kindly supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation.

★★★★ ‘A landmark production as women take charge’ Evening Standard

★★★★ ‘Deftly provocative and exuberantly entertaining’ The Times

★★★★ ‘Beautiful…revelatory…wonderful’ Whatsonstage

★★★★ ‘Funny…eye-opening and illuminating’ Whatsonstage

★★★★ ‘Justin Audibert’s RSC production extracts every laugh from the subplot’ The Sunday Times
