A Coronation Week Comedy Confrontation

Who’s the real power behind the throne?

Will’s Kate or Kate’s ‘will’?!!

Romance is in the air in Padua, but how do you discover the perfect partner? Two young people are looking for something different; away from the conformity of paternal expectations and control.

Katherina and Petruchio’s first fiery meeting and their subsequent speedy courtship brings out their true feelings (or does it?!) leaving friends and family agog.

Can they find in each other what they’re looking for? Meanwhile, sneaky, younger sister Bianca sets about selecting a mate in a very different and deceptive manner….

Who ends up the happiest in Will Shakespeare’s Italian epic?
