The rich, young Lucentio arrives in the Italian city of Padua to attend university, but is immediately entranced by the beautiful Bianca. But there are complications: Bianca already has two suitors and her father has declared that no one can woo her until her older sister, the ill-tempered, mean-spirited Katherine, weds. While Bianca's suitors find creative ways to spend time with her, enter Petruchio, a brash young man determined to marry a wealthy woman -- whatever her temperament. Petruchio's campaign to "tame" Katherine ensues and by the conclusion of the play, there are three sets of newlyweds. A lighthearted romantic comedy by the most influential writer in all of English literature celebrates the quick wit and fiery spirit of its heroine.
