The Taming of the Shrew - Summer Shakespeare Tour 2020
Durham University’s Castle Theatre Company presents one of William Shakespeare’s most intriguing and brilliant comedies: The Taming of the Shrew. Telling the classic tale of true love emerging from mutual hatred, this hilarious production engages in disguise, deceit and devastatingly funny Shakespearean insults to tell a story of love in unlikely places. Katherina Minola is a bold, fierce young woman, opposed to marriage in all its forms. Her beautiful and mild-mannered sister, Bianca, has her pick of the local suitors in Padua, but their father insists that Bianca shall not wed until Katherina has a husband. Enter Petruchio, a young man with a temper to rival even the most shrewish of women – but when two fiery personalities clash, can true love find a way? Castle Theatre Company (CTC) is one of Durham University's oldest theatrical societies. For nearly four decades, it has taken its annual summer Shakespeare tour around England and the United States, visiting historic houses, castles and abbeys. With song, dance and plenty of laughter, Castle Theatre Company promises light-hearted family entertainment for all.
