  • The Taming of the Shrew


    The Taming of the Shrew is a play about the courtship between nobleman Petruchio and shrill, stubborn Katherina. Petruchio, advised by his friends, subjects Katherina to many forms of psychological warfare until she begins to accept his courtship. Eventually the two become engaged and Katherina's personality is successfully moderated by Petruchio's tactics, accomplishing the eponymous taming of the shrew by making Katherina a fit candidate for marriage, raising children, and display in high society.
