Shakespeare at Traquair Shakespeare Shorts – The Taming of the Shrew

Children's Shows


Kate’s cast is revolting; fed up of being outnumbered by the audience, they want to make Shakespeare fun to watch by turning the history plays into a rugby game, Romeo and Juliet into an ice cream war and Hamlet into a comedy. Kate, their director, is in despair. But can Petrucio tame this tyrant? Music and mayhem in a modern day version of this classic, specially adapted for a young audience. 'Innovative take on this Shakespeare classic' (Peeblesshire News). 'Accessible Shakespeare at its best' (Southern Reporter).

This show was part of our 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
