Bianca has men running after her. Kate has men running away from her. Either they both get married or neither of them do.

Is anyone man enough to take on the Shrew?

This 2 hour 10 minute rollercoaster has boys playing girls and girls playing boys to tell the story of two people's crazy journey towards becoming the perfect match.  

Including an introduction to the performance and a chance to hear from the actors afterwards, First Encounter: The Taming of the Shrew uses a distilled version of the original text to create the perfect first experience of Shakespeare for 8-13 year olds.

As well as touring to venues across the UK, First Encounter: The Taming of the Shrew will also be performed in schools.

 

The RSC Ensemble is generously supported by THE GATSBY CHARITABLE FOUNDATION and THE KOVNER FOUNDATION
