Taming of the Tamer by Patrick Young
This classic 1611 sequel to Shakespeare's SHREW convinced the Bard to take Fletcher on as his partner and then his successor as chief writer for the King's Men. The widowed Petruchio has just taken Kate's cousin Maria as his second wife - but this time he gets his comeuppance! A brilliant proto-feminist comedy now fully accessible in streamlined acting version.
