The Taming of the Shrew

Hosted by Bard on the Beach


1695 Whyte Avenue, Vancouver, BC, Canada

July 21 at 2 PM
August 10 at 7:30 PM
September 8 at 2 PM

The 2007 ‘spaghetti western’ version of The Taming of the Shrew – one of Bard’s most beloved productions – is the inspiration behind this hilarious Wild-West love story, where two fierce kindred spirits finally meet their match in each other. Petruchio, the sharpest-shooting cowboy in the West meets Kate, the prickliest gal in Padua, and their throw-down contest of wills and wits will leave you laughing out loud as they bicker and battle their way towards a splendid, healing love.
