‘Come on, and kiss me, Kate’
In a reimagined 1590, society is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.
Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism is turned on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power, directed by Justin Audibert.
"A landmark production as women take charge" (The Evening Standard ★★★★)
"Deftly provocative and exuberantly entertaining" (The Times ★★★★)
