The Taming of the Shrew DVD (Shakespeare's Globe)

Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew tells the tale of the sharp-tongued Kate, who must marry before her younger sister Bianca is allowed to find a suitor. Undaunted by her waspish reputation, Petruchio attempts to woo the not-so-fair maiden, but is faced with a tirade of poisonous insults. Samantha Spiro stars as cantankerous Kate, capable of knocking a grown man down with her fist. With a stellar supporting cast, the production is a triumph, thanks to its ‘riotous mixture of verbal dexterity and slapstick’ (Daily Telegraph). ‘This is a crowd-pleasing production… and the laughs come thick and fast’ – The Evening Standard
