RSC Taming of the Shrew on Tour
Date Posted: 17/12/13
Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew is one of the Bard's most famous plays - but youngsters might not see the appeal of this centuries-old comedy.
Luckily, a First Encounter version of the play, designed to provide a way into England's greatest playwright for people aged eight and up, is set to start touring soon.
The Royal Shakespeare Company production has been cut to just over two hours and features an introduction before the show, as well as a talk from actors after.
It will be in Stratford February 6th to 8th next year, at the Courtyard Theatre. Canterbury, Bradford, Blackpool, Leicester and Newcastle under Lyme will also get performances of the play, which will be performed in theatres and also in schools at each location it visits.
Short breaks could be a great way to get yourself a place to stay in one of the locations this Shakespearean treat is due to be performed, once you've got tickets.
