It’s shrew time for lovers of Shake­speare com­edy

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON STAGE -

THE Chiltern Shake­speare Com­pany is back with one of the bard’s most en­ter­tain­ing plays – The Tam­ing of The Shrew.

The fa­mous com­edy tells the tale of the tus­sle be­tween hot-headed Kate and her dy­namic wooer Petru­chio.

The venue is the park­land of Hall Barn, Bea­cons­field from June 10 -13 and June 17-20 at 8pm, with mati­nee per­for­mances on June 13 and June 20 at 2pm.

The grounds will open two hours be­fore the show for those who want to en­joy a pic­nic by the pic­turesque lake.

This year the com­pany will be sup­port­ing Penn School, a non-main­tained day and board­ing school for chil­dren with com­mu­ni­ca­tion dif­fi­cul­ties.

The small classes are sup­ported by spe­cial­ist teach­ers, speech and lan­guage ther­a­pists and ad­di­tional learn­ing sup­port.

For the older pupils, em­pha­sis is placed on work-re­lated learn­ing, in­de­pen­dent living and links with col­leges.

The do­na­tion will be used for a much-needed up­grade of com­put­ers and other IT equip­ment.
