“The Taming of The Shrew” at the Botanical Gardens, Victoria Park. 15-18 July 2009.
Bath Drama and The Rondo Theatre Company united once again to bring you a feast of open air Shakespearian comedy. Director Sophie Brooks focused on the comedy, both verbal and physical, in this famous battle of the sexes to ensure it is accessible to families as well as familiar to fans.
Following the successful production of The Canterbury Tales, these open air performances were once again performed in the Botanical Gardens in Victoria Park, Bath. This beautiful outdoor location provides a breathtaking setting for Shakespeare’s comedy. With a highly talented cast and colourful period costumes, this was a visual feast for people of all ages.
As usual Bath Drama and The Rondo Theatre Company presented this production as a charity fund raiser. All profits from the performances were donated to Julian House Bath which provides both shelter and support for the homeless.
“The setting is lovely…a good evening was had by all, cast and audience.” Bath Chronicle review of The Canterbury Tales 2008
