Two Gents Productions
“Whereas some Shakespeare fans believe the bard should not be tampered with, Two Gents Productions… show that a 75 minute version of the tale can pack just as much, if not more of a punch than its longer cousin” – British Theatre Guide.
Two actors and a bare stage are all it takes to create an energetic, entertaining and exciting version of this Shakespeare classic. Treating Shakespeare with both respect and irreverence, two larger than life performers take on all the roles, adding some rough and tumble with seamless moments of audience interaction.
The Taming of the Shrew takes on the classic War of the Sexes. But is Pinturicchio’s ‘taming’ of Kate an act of love, violent submission or, perhaps more controversially, both? Find out in this fast-paced version of one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays.
“seriously entertaining” The Observer,
“deft, dexterous and wickedly joyful” Stet Journal, “a striking gem” whatsonstage
