Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew

Open Air Picnic Theatre on the Cedar Lawn

Sunday 22 Jul, 3.00pm and 7.45pm

The Taming of the Shrew contains a play within a play and so much deception that it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the plot, but it all makes for excellent comedy. At the end, the wilful shrewish Katherina appears to be tamed by her new husband, Petruchio. Or, by apparent docility, has Katherina learnt another way to impose her will?

This is the second of our Shakespeare performances in Summer 2012. We are also putting on The Tempest.

The GB Theatre Company

The GB Theatre Company is a British-based classical theatre company formed in 2010.  It is dedicated to producing plays that can be played both indoor and in the open air.  They present plays with a full cast of experienced (and some very distinguished) actors with limited doubling up. They perform the plays in Elizabethan costume.

The company played at Kentwell during their first season, in 2010, they produced a very impressive Merry Wives of Windsor with an outstanding Falstaff ably supported by an excellent cast and also* As You Like It with as good a fight scene as you'll ever see. They followed this in 2011 with *Twelfth Night, and an excellent Malvolio and a great Romeo & Juliet.
