Taming of the Shrew (version 2)-logo

Taming of the Shrew (version 2)

William Shakespeare

When local drunkard Christopher Sly walks into a tavern, the last thing he expects is a complex trick where, to the amusement of many others, he is tricked into believing that he's a nobleman! And so begins the Taming of the Shrew, one of Shakespeare's earlier comedies. For the enjoyment of this "lord", a group of players perform a tale of love and devotion, where the beautiful Bianca is pursued by many suitors. But there's a catch. Before her father will allow Bianca to marry, he must find a suitable match for his older daughter, the fiery "shrew" of the title, Katherina. Enter Petruccio, who has "come to wive it wealthily in Padua" and will stop at nothing to tame this shrew! This play was recorded in two weeks as part of Librivox's celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death Cast List Narrator, Philip: Rachel Christopher Sly: LindaB Hostess, Bianca, Peter: Esther ben Simonides Lord, Grumio: Phil Schempf First Huntsman, Messenger, Biondello, Joseph: Sonia Second Huntsman, Katharina, Fourth Servant, Nicholas: Adele de Pignerolles Player, Lucentio, Nathaniel: Charlotte Duckett First Servant, Pedant, Tailor: Maria Kasper Second Servant: Elijah Fisher Third Servant, Vincentio: Ray Kasper Page, Petruchio: Tony Addison Tranio: Roohi Baptista: TriciaG Gremio: Delmar H Dolbier Hortensio, Curtis: Hamlet Haberdasher: Kathrine Engan Widow: Jennifer Fournier Audio edited by: Esther ben Simonides, Adele de Pignerolles, Maria Kasper, Rachel, & Kim
