Antony and Cleopatra: Study Day

Nancy Knowles Lecture Theatre
Price: £100.00 Book Now

Deep dive into The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare’s challenging early comedy, and discover more about our 2024 production in this interactive Study Day.

Through a series of talks and discussions with academics and artists, you’ll explore the play’s characters, its provocative portrayal of gender, sexism and misogyny, learn about its original cultural context and performance history, and understand how critical responses to it have evolved over time.

You’ll end the day with a Q&A with members of the company of our summer production, giving you the chance to ask questions and gain further insight into the show.

This Study Day can be enjoyed on its own but is also a perfect introduction to our production of The Taming of the Shrew so why not round off your day with a ticket to the evening performance following the Study Day. Tickets for the performance are not included in the Study Day ticket price and must be purchased separately.
