Set in the idyllic town of Padua, The Taming of the Shrew tells the story of the timeless battle of the sexes. Bianca Minola, the beautiful daughter of a lord, is eligible for marriage but cannot be courted until her elder sister, Katherina, finds a husband. Katherina’s quick temper and acerbic wit, however, frighten off every potential suitor. Feeling that they are running out of options, two suitors hire a newcomer named Petruchio to seduce and “tame” Katherina. After their exchanges of wisecracks and double entendres, Petruchio succeeds in dragging Katharina to the altar then away to his country home. Once there, the taming process begins, with both sides unwilling to yield.

Aquila breathes fresh life into one of Shakespeare’s most challenging comedies, with The New Yorker describing their productions as “The classics made relevant with superb acting and clever staging” while The New York Times exclaims "The excellent Aquila Theatre, an extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.”
