The Globe Theatre is #10 in our London Bucket List

Director: Brendan O'Hea; Written by: William Shakespeare

The Globe Theatre is putting on a production of Shakespeare's great screwball comedy: The Taming of the Shrew.

The play follows two wealthy sisters hell-bent on outwitting each other as they search for a husband. Bianca is modest and kind and has no trouble attracting a string of suitors, but Katherina is wild and shrewish, and the only man who wants to know her is the gold-digging Petruchio.

But will he be able to bully Katherina to the altar?

Note: the Globe's theatre season runs from April to October. Craig has been to watch a play at the Globe himself and thoroughly recommends it because it's not like any other theatre you've ever seen -- it's all open-air, for a start, and it has a standing area in the middle (called 'The Yard'). The actors sometimes parade through this yard during the scenes, and end up involving the crowd as if they were part of the cast. Read Craig's review of watching a play at the Globe before you go, so you can get a feeling for what it's like inside.
