Delve Into William Shakespeare’s Beloved Comedy Classic


The 18th of May 2024 to the 5th of January 2025


Rediscover one of William Shakespeare’s best-loved classic comedies this summer, as ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ returns to the historic stage of The Globe Theatre.

Love, deception, and a touch of the absurd collide in this bold new production directed by the rising star, Jude Christian. Fresh off the heels of his critically acclaimed “brilliantly provocative” take on Titus Andronicus in 2022, Christian tackles this playful yet thought-provoking early Shakespearian comedy.

The plot centres on the fiery Katherina, whose fiercely independent spirit stands in the way of her younger sister Bianca’s romantic prospects. Enter Lucentio, smitten with Bianca, and Petruchio, a larger-than-life character determined to tame the wild Katherina. But will Petruchio’s outrageous manipulations truly win her heart, or is there more to this game of love and power?

The perfect light-hearted introduction for first-time Shakespeare theatre-goers, or a classic for literary lovers, treat yourself to an evening at The Globe this summer.

Feeling inspired by Shakespeare’s classic tale? A visit to the Barbican’s upcoming production of ‘Kiss Me Kate’, a musical based around a production of the show, is a must for theatre fanatics looking to experience a little more of the Bard’s most beloved work.
