The Taming Of The Shrew Stratford Shakespeare Festival production 1988.
With Goldie Semple as Katherina and Colm Feore as Petruchio, Richard Monette's rollicking Stratford treatment is set in a colourful Italy of the 1950's. Colm Feore depicts Petruchio as a swaggering leather-jacketed street bandit who roars up to marry Kate (Goldie Semple) on a sporty Lambretta.
As raucous and rousing as an Italian wine festival, Shakespeare's favorite battle of the sexes has returned into a party where wits and willpower do contest, but the final victor is the belly-laugh.
