The Taming of the ShrewThe all-male Shakespeare company Propeller will be bringing two simultaneous plays to the Rose Theatre this year: The Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night. A controversial comedy from Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew is viewed by some as derogatory to women due to submissive tendencies throughout. Two competing suitors are striving to gain the hand of the beautiful Bianca. However, Bianca's father will not allow her to date until Kate, the older viciously tempered sister (the shrew), also starts dating. The suitors therefore take on disguises while they attempt to win her affection. Meanwhile, gold digging Petruchio agrees to wed Kate and so the taming of the shrew begins.
