Bad Quarto Productions, a theatre company specializing in performing modern theatre using Shakespearean staging techniques, will stage The Taming of a Shrew, the earliest printed version of Shakespeare’s famous Shrew play. Printed in 1594, The Taming of a Shrew dates from the earliest moments in Shakespeare’s career as a writer and actor, when the man we all know simply as “the Bard” was a relative newcomer to the London theatre scene of Renaissance England. Though it precedes the more commonly known version (from the 1623 First Folio) by almost 30 years, The Taming of a Shrew is a version of the shrew taming play that was shockingly progressive for its time, and that answers many of the concerns of modern Feminist critics.
