In Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew” Petruchio marries a harpy known as Kate. He does so not for love or for passion, but rather for the dowry attached to her head. With a little wit and a lot of stubbornness he transforms his shrew into a pliable and obedient housewife.
The parts of the above mentioned marriage that The Bard conveniently “forgot” to dramatize lie within this play. In it you will find that Kate turned the tables on her husband after their honeymoon. You will also find this brilliant woman embroiled in a new drama that pits intellect against spite and threatens to crush true love.
