17 March 2020 - 21 March 2020

IN A REIMAGINED 1590, ENGLAND IS A MATRIARCHY

Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.

Justin Audibert turns Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.

The RSC 2020 Season also features Measure for Measure and As You Like It.

Join us for one, join us for all. It’s going to be quite a season.

Contains some loud bangs.
