By William Shakespeare

produced by Lazarus Theatre Company

I see a woman may be made a fool
If she had not a spirit to resist.

Kate talks too much; at least, that’s what the men of Padua think. So they persuade Petruchio to marry her and bring his wilful wife to heel.

Shakespeare’s battle of the sexes hits the stage in an all-new ensemble production. With festival staging and a contemporary score, this is a Shrew not to be missed!

Lazarus Theatre’s Season of Legacy continues with Shakespeare’s feisty The Taming of the Shrew. Lazarus is an award-winning Theatre Company, re-imagining and revitalising classic text for a contemporary audience.

Press for this production:

I cannot recommend this production enough. There are so many clever moments that are funny, painful, and sad, in equal measure, The cast and crew have obviously worked incredibly hard to see this vision through in every detail of the play. If Kneehigh did fringe theatre, this would be it. It’s the kind of show you’ll be thinking about for days afterwards. ★★★★★ London Pub Theatres

Faultless delivery and complete immersion into a festival atmosphere keeps the party going all evening. ★★★★ Everything Theatre

Full marks to the Lazarus Theatre Company for injecting a summery festival feel into Shakespeare’s problem play… The Taming of the Shrew, is given a radical new look, a different emphasis and features a welcome, unexpected, act of rebellion ★★★★ Stage Review  

A highly energetic and entertaining version of the play… Played in the round, with some fascinating costume and music choices, this production of The Taming of the Shrew works very well at grabbing and holding its audience’s attention from the beginning ★★★★ London Theatre1

With The Taming of the Shrew, Lazarus Theatre have done it again, re-imagining a classic play in a modern, exciting and joyful production that cannot fail to bring a goofy smile to your face. Fairy Powered Productions
