About this item
Unfamiliar English accents, so prevalent in most Shakespearean production, are absent from this series. English and drama teachers, as well as the typical playgoer, will find this feature of tremendous value. Shakespeare's own language is preserved; clarity of both language and story is achieved. The story centers on two sisters and their suitors. Katherina, the eldest daughter, is very beautiful but so sharp-tongued that no man shows interest. Bianca, is sought by many men, but cannot marry until the elder Katherina is wed. A swaggering, young adventurer, Petruchio, appears seeking a wife and is smitten with Katherina. The stormy courtship of Katherina and Petruchio unfolds in a battle of wits, wills and words. She obeys her father's wishes, marries Petruchio, and he begins the task of taming his shrew.
