“Peace it bodes, and love, and quiet life”

Reamus Youth Theatre’s
The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare

Directed by Joanne Lawler

August 16 to 31

One of the Bard’s earliest and most popular plays, The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy of wooing, winning and wedding. A battle of sexes involving a strong-minded, bitter shrew wooed by an equally stubborn man.

This rough and tumble play of unconventional romance is rife with subplots involving the Bard’s customary devices of disguises and mistaken identity.
