Welcome to Sly’s, the most popular bar in Padua!
Bookish newcomer Lucentia and local Hortensia are both taken with the handsome bartender Bianco. The only hitch: his mother Baptista won’t let him settle down until his surly older brother Kit finds a partner. While Lucentia hatches a plan of subterfuge and disguise, Hortensia enlists the help of the arrogant Petruchia to woo Kit and leave his brother free to marry.
With both plots set in motion, grab a drink at Sly’s and watch the bar’s raucous patrons navigate a tricky journey towards love and self-realisation: maybe opposites really do attract after all.
