In 16th Century Padua, Baptista’s daughter Bianca wishes to marry but her father insists that her older sister, the sharp tongued and rebellious Katharine must be married first. Petruchio, a poverty-stricken gentleman from Verona, journeys to Padua in search of a wealthy wife. There, he encounters the fiery Katharine who leads him on a merry chase as he attempts to circumvent her efforts to avoid marriage. When the embattled couple return to Padua, Kate helps Petruchio win a wager that his is the most obedient of wives but in reality, the wily Kate has found a more effective way to dominate her mate. Two sub-plots centre on the other partnerships which develop throughout the play, primarily focusing on Bianca and her suitors, but also following Hortensio’s relationship with the Widow.
