TheatreMAYNARDVILLE OPEN-AIR THEATRE
This summer, Shakespeare’s battle of the sexes THE TAMING OF THE SHREW comes to life under the stars with a meeting of classical text and modern twist. 62 years after it was performed as the very first Shakespeare on the Maynardville stage Tara Notcutt makes history with an all-female cast, something never before seen on a South African stage. Matters of gender, marriage, and family come together in this dark comedy of Kate, a headstrong woman, and her tempestuous relationship with Petruchio, the man who is set on wooing and winning her.
