Love(?) is in the air in Padua! Three oafish men are vying for the hand of the beautiful Bianca. Their only obstacle, apart from their hilariously garish personalities, is Bianca’s father who insists that his eldest daughter, Katharina, be married first. Reports of Katharina’s personality describe her as “shrewish”, loud, obstinate, hellish, and worse; but they won’t stop the boastful vagabond Petruchio from staking his claim to her hand.
 
Disguise, deceit, violence and more are bursting forth from this high-energy comedy.
 
Director: Connor Hopper
