4/30 The Taming of the Shrew
This Tuesday, April 30th, we will be reading “The Taming of the Shrew” by William Shakespeare.
This drama is one of the great comedy plays by William Shakespeare. The play starts with the Induction where a trick is played by a nobleman on the drunkard Christopher Sly who arranges for an acting troupe to perform a play called The Taming of the Shrew…
The beautiful and gentle Bianca has no shortage of admirers (Lucentio, Gremio and Hortensio) but her father insists that she will not marry until her shrewish sister, Katharina, is betrothed. Bianca’s suitors persuade fortune-seeker Petruchio to court her. The suitors pay for any costs involved and there is also the goal of Katharina’s dowry. Petruchio marries Katharina and he carries Katharina off to his country house with his servant Grumio.
