The Taming Of The “Shrew”

19th June 202430th June 2024

Unseemly Women return in 2024 with their 6th annual Shakespeare, with an all female and non-binary cast. Step into a world of burlesque, clowns and cabaret; exploring one of Shakespeare’s most talked-about comedies. 

A drunken patron (Sly) falls victim to our gang of Unseemly Women. As Sly wakes from his wild night of Cabaret, he is told a story, supporting a wider prank that Sly is not a drunken patron, but a Lord of great status and wealth. Our Unseemly Women spin him a tale about a wealthy merchant of Padua, and two daughters: Katerina and Bianca. Because of Katerina’s “shrewish” disposition, her father has declared that no one shall wed Bianca until such a time as Katerina has been married.
