Set in the late 1950's, Verona, Italy, this comedy of errors is a fast-paced, battle of the sexes filled with witty and playful humor that tells the story of the Minola family, desperate suitors, clever disguises, and unconventional romance.
"One of the Bard’s earliest and most popular plays, The Taming of the Shrew is rife with subplots involving his customary devices of disguise and mistaken identity. The vivid language, studded with elaborate puns is an engaging compliment to the play’s slapstick humor." —Dover Publications
