The Taming of the Shrew
    By William Shakespeare

    19:30, Wed 20th – Sat 23rd June 2007 at Clare Fellow's Garden
    Easter May Week

    Shakespeare's classic comedy is relocated to the world of manners, tea-dances and the serious matter of the marriage market, as suitors vie for the affections of the eligible Bianca, whilst her sharp-tongued sister Katherina battles against the crazed and persistant attentions of Petruchio, a most determined young gentleman with a bet to win and, in due course, a wife to “tame”. An intrigue of disguises and deceptions, and a battle of wills, unfold in the beautiful surroundings of Clare Colleges sunken garden.

    Starring some of Cambridges most promising young actors, musicians, dancers and performers, The Taming of the Shrew looks set to follow in the footsteps of its dramatic predecessors in making the Clare May Week Show one of Cambridge's finest.
