Presented by Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts

Director Peter Zazzali from the University of Kansas tackles Shakespeare's controversial battle-of-the-sexes comedy about power and gender.

Baptista has two daughters: docile, beautiful Bianca who is much sought after by the noblemen of the town, and ill-tempered Katherine, whose acid tongue keeps suitors at bay. In the tradition of the times, Katherine - as the oldest - must marry first. Bianca's many suitors can't afford to wait, so in a wild scheme to find a husband for Katherine, they convince the wily Petruchio to take on the challenge.
