The story of Katherina Minola and her marriage to Petruchio has been popular in the theatre for four centuries.

The Taming of the Shrew is another early Shakespeare play, and it's one that makes me distinctly uncomfortable - maybe even more so than The Merchant of Venice, another "problem play." It is, in my opinion, a misogynistic play.
