Denying that of God? - preview

Melvyn Freake watched The Taming of the Shrew

We saw the Royal Shakespeare Company's (RSC) production of The Taming of the Shrew at Stratford's Courtyard Theatre, as part of the 'Experiencing Shakespeare' course led by David and Margaret Gray and held this year at Charney Manor
  • David told us that the play is difficult for a twenty-first century UK audience and that it belongs to the early Shakespeare period of stage portrayal of rape, murder and disfigurement, all of which would have gone down well with an audience enjoying visits to Bedlam and hangings
