Richmond Shakespeare Festival: Taming of the Shrew

Richmond Shakespeare Festival: Taming of the Shrew

Quill Theatre presents "The Taming of the Shrew" under the stars with the backdrop of historic Agecroft Hall. Arrive at 6:00 p.m. for a stroll or bring a picnic dinner to enjoy on the lawn before the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest and beautiful Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, ‘shrewish’ Katherina? Perhaps the gold-digging Petruchio, as maddeningly strong-willed and perverse as Katherina herself, will rise to the task of bullying her to the altar. Shakespeare’s original screwball comedy shows the lengths men will go to for their legacy and what women will do to break free. This play about gender power struggle is considered the bard’s most misogynistic, but performed by an all-female cast offers an exciting new perspective. Adults - $30 ($35 at the door) Seniors (65+) - $25 ($30 at the door) RVATA (Must show card) - $20 ($25 at the door) Students (Must show ID) - $20 Groups (10+)* - $25 Additional fees may apply *For group sales, please contact Katie Reynolds at KReynolds@agecrofthall.com
