Sport For Jove stages The Taming of the Shrew
Sport For Jove Theatre returns in May to the indoor stages of Riverside Theatre in Parramatta and the Seymour Centre in Sydney's CBD with a remount of one its most celebrated and awarded plays The Taming of the Shrew.
Shakespeare's comedies are models of disharmony, with families in collapse, where trust, patience and finally, hope, are only reached through chaos and great personal compromise and pain. They are as troubling as they are funny, and as beautiful as they are disturbing. The Taming of the Shrew captures that paradox perfectly, among the most challenging, confronting and exuberant plays ever written. By making us laugh at them, he shows us how much we have come to accept and ignore the brutal power structures that still define our society.
Sport for Jove's world-class production won unanimous critical acclaim in its 2011/12 Summer Festival Season, where it was nominated for 5 Sydney Theatre Awards including Best Independent Production, Actor, Actress, Director and Design. This strictly limited season is not to be missed!
