York Shakespeare Project


1970. As they emerge from the post WW2 blues, the baby boomers are growing up, primed and ready to do their own thing. A psychedelic world is opening up, promising peace, love and equality.

Kate was born, born to be wild. She wants a voice of her own. The Times They Are a’Changin’ and the old order is dead.

Or is it?

Find out in The Taming of The Shrew, Shakespeare’s controversial battle of the sexes, as York Shakespeare Project welcomes back Maggie Smales to direct the latest production in its 25-year mission to stage all of the Bard’s plays in York.
