Shakespeare’s feisty female creation, Katherine, and her mad-cap suitor, Petruchio, lead the action in this great comedy of farcical impediments, impersonation, and impassioned love. Welcome to the colourful world of sunny Padua as the inimitable Festival Players Theatre Company arrive with a fun-packed, energetic, and brilliantly inventive production of this perennial favourite.

The performance starts at 6.00pm. The gate will be open from 5.00pm for picnics before the performance.

Tickets (£15) are available from Stroud Subscription Rooms: telephone 01453-760900 or from the Mansion shop on Mansion open days.

Please note that this is an outdoor performance which will take place regardless of the weather, so come prepared and bring your own chairs, rugs, cushions.

For all enquires call the Mansion office: 01453-861541.
