  • "Padua holds many suitors for the hand of fair Bianca, but Bianca may not be married until her spinster sister Kate is wed. Could any man be rash enough to take Kate on? The witty adventurer Petruchio undertakes the task. While he sets about transforming Kate from foul-tempered termagant to loving wife, young Lucentio and his clever servant Tranio plot to win Bianca. The result is a sparkling comedy of self-delusion and disguise, set in the context of a play within a play"--Container.
