This Shakespeare Series has recaptured the Elizabethan flavor of Shakespeare's own Globe productions by staging them just as they were seen in the 16th century. One of Shakespeare's most popular plays, "The Taming of the Shrew" examines the comedy of courtship of a beautiful but sharp-tempered women and her persistent suitor. The story centers on two sisters and their suitors. Kathernia, the eldest daughter, is beautiful but sharp-tongued. Bianca is sought by many men but cannot marry until the elder Katherina is wed. When Petruchio appears seeking a wife, the stormy courtship of Katherina and Petruchio unfolds as a battle of wits, wills and words. Featuring Franklyn Seales, Karen Austin and Larry Drake. Grades 9-12/ 115 minutes on DVD.
