Theatre: Taming of the Shrew, Iveagh Gardens


(Not a Traditional) Taming of the Shrew

Fortune’s Fool Productions is at it again with a raucous performance of Shakespeare’s most misogynist comedy, The Taming of the Shrew, but go ahead and be Fooled (Fortune’s Fooled that is) as nothing is at it seems in our (Not a Traditional) Taming of the Shrew.

Katherina’s younger sister, Bianca, is the most sought after bride in Padua but her father has vowed that Bianca cannot marry until her older sister, Katherina, the shrew, becomes a wife. The hunt is on to find a tamer and set Bianca free to be woo’d (or bought) by the most worthy suitor.

Expect the unexpected in this hysterical (and sometimes troubling) comedy. Save the dates in your calendar and pray for good weather:

6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14 AUGUST  7PM Curtain – Show finishes by 9PM

8, 9, 15 & 16 AUGUST 3PM Curtain – Show finishes by 5PM

Admission is FREE! Access to the performances is from the Clonmel Street entrance. Bring a blanket or tarp to sit on, a picnic supper (just remember alcohol is not permitted in the park) and enjoy the show!
