Samantha Spiro to star in The Taming of the Shrew
Date Posted: 06/02/12
Samantha Spiro has been named in the cast of Shakespeare's Globe's production of The Taming of the Shrew, which is part of its The Play's The Thing season.
The Olivier Award-winning actress will step into the shoes of Katherina when it opens in front of fans booking London theatre breaks on Saturday June 23rd.
Toby Frow is set to direct the play, which is renowned for being William Shakespeare's most outrageous comedy.
It tells the story of two wealthy sisters who are due to be married off. While Bianca has no shortage of suitors, it is a different story for Katherina, and it is up to Petruchio to bully her to the altar.
The other productions appearing at the London venue over the coming season include Henry V, with Jamie Parker reprising his role from two years ago.
Mark Rylance will also return to the Globe to take the title role in a new version of Richard III.
