By William Shakespeare

Shakespeare in the Bodleian Quadrangle Firmly established as one of the city's annual highlights, Oxford Playhouse and the Bodleian Library are delighted to welcome back the Globe Theatre on Tour to perform The Taming of the Shrew in the stunning setting of the Old Schools Quadrangle, Bodleian Library.

Shakespeare's outrageous comedy introduces one of theatre's great screwball double-acts: a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to its controversial conclusion.
