As Caro­line Byrne takes over as artis­tic di­rec­tor at Shake­speare’s Globe – the first woman to do so – the first play she is stag­ing is TheTamin­goftheShrew (from 13 May). The story fol­lows two sis­ters: the beau­ti­ful Bianca, who’s keen to marry, and her re­bel­lious sis­ter Katha­rina, who clings to her in­de­pen­dence. Their father in­sists Katha­rina must marry first, so Bianca’s ad­mir­ers per­suade Petru­chio to pro­pose to her. But can Katha­rina be tamed? Now is an apt time to visit the Globe as this year is the 400th an­niver­sary of Shake­speare’s death.
