Outside Theatre: Taming of the Shrew

Sat 29/08/15 7:00 pm

 Once again Winchester Cathedral welcomes back Illyria for the 2015 summer outside
theatre programme.
Everyone wants to marry mild-mannered Bianca. No-one wants to marry her
acid-tongued older sister Kate. Their father won’t let anyone marry Bianca until a
husband can be found for Kate – but no-one knows anyone mad enough to take her on.
Until Petruchio comes to town, when sparks are guaranteed to fly! Illyria has won 4
international awards and attracted numerous "5-star" and "Critics' Choice" reviews for
the lively clarity of its performances of Shakespeare's comedies.
Bring friends, family, a picnic, and low back seating or blanket to sit on. Doors open at
6.15pm and the performance will start at 7pm.
Rain or bad weather does not stop Illyria's performances - Cancellation in the event of
a hurricane only, so make sure you dress appropriately. Tickets are non-refundable.
Running time: 2hr 20min (inc 20 min interval)
Suitable for all ages 8+
