In fact, rehearsals are already underway for the retelling of the Bard’s The Taming of the Shrew, which will be staged from 14-23 July and directed by the renowned Polly March.

This is a love story, about two people who find their match – and their equal – in each other.”



Of course, The Taming of The Shrew is also a …
