CBC Drama Special The Taming of the Shrew

CBC Drama Special The Taming of the Shrew

Petruchio, a strutting suitor, sets out to undermine the spirit of Katharina, the bad tempered object of his affections. As his wife, it is her duty to care for him more than for herself. Starring Len Cariou and Sharry Flett, this production is now a Stratford classic. Shakespeare's rollicking 16th century battle of the sexes is treated in a traditional fashion by British stage director Peter Dews. Taped before a live audience, the quality and integrity of Shakespeare's original text is retained in this beautiful production.
