The Drama Department has returned triumphant yet again with its twelfth sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe, with Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

This is a production and interpretation unlike any previous production seen. Set in the aftermath of WW1, it focuses on the empowerment and exploration of emerging female rights in the suffragette era, in particular, the way in which women have to fight for their rights in a fast-changing world.

Having returned from their season at Edinburgh, the School’s Close Up Theatre Company will present the show for the final time in the School theatre, with dazzling and much acclaimed performances from Beth Leishman as the fiery Katherina and Max Thomas as the man determined to tame her – Petruchio.

Please join us this Friday 9 September, at 7.30pm, in the Bacon Theatre. Tickets are not required and everyone is welcome.

Theproduction is one and half hours long, with no interval.
