Shakespeare: The Animated Tales | The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

Shakespeare's witty and fast-moving comic battle of the sexes is given a fresh airing in puppet animation. Headstrong Kate and domineering Petruchio seem an unlikely pairing, just one aspect of a play about change and the magical transformations that theatre can produce.
