Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank

If I be waspish, best beware my sting.

Next February and March we stage one of Shakespeare’s more problematic comedies, The Taming of the Shrew, in a production created just for Secondary and A level students.

If you thought Beatrice and Benedick’s courtship was a ‘merry war’ then Katherine and Petruchio’s is a savage battle. This story of sibling rivalry, perceptions and expectations of women, their role in society and the power of fathers and husbands, challenges our thinking about relationships and the individual’s right to decide their own destiny. 

Our acclaimed Playing Shakespeare series creates thrilling 100-minute fully-staged versions of Shakespeare’s plays specifically for Key Stage 3, 4 and A-Level students. Specially created for schools, Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank features continuing professional development for teachers and award winning web resources.
