'The Taming Of The Shrew'


You are invited to Heartbreak Productions’ 1928 Fete of Misrule to enjoy an open air performance of The Taming of the Shrew in a beautiful setting.

Everyone wants to marry Bianca, Kate’s younger sister but no suitor can be found for Kate who must be married before her sister. Enter Petruchio, a gamester on the make who surprises them both with the most unconventional courtship in English literature. …

A controversial, passionate and tender story of sexual politics: The Taming of the Shrew focuses on the electric battle between Petruchio and Kate, two of Shakespeare's most unforgettable characters.

Brought to life by the Heartbreak hallmark elements of live music, humour and audience interaction, this outdoor adaptation creates a perfect introduction to Shakespeare.

Bring your picnic, your comfy cushion, and your sense of fun, and see who gets the best of it in this timeless battle of the sexes.

Enjoy Heartbreak’s humorous and playful production of this unlikely love story as two people come to know each other and understand what magic is needed to create the “perfect” marriage.
