Open Bar are back with 'The Taming of the Shrew' a play brimming with comedy, romance and adventure!

“And where two raging fires meet together they do consume the thing that feeds their fury.”

The Taming of the Shrew, Act 2 Scene 1

Two of Shakespeare's biggest hotheads are pitted together in this fiery comedy about marital politics. Four actors will play all 22 characters in Open Bar’s production of The Taming of the Shrew. Expect smashed instruments, ruined weddings and original songs you’ll be singing all the way home from the pub.

    Three of us went to the last night. It was excellent. Such passion, energy and ... humour. Great songs as well. The actors were word perfect - not the slightest hesitation - and a lively pace was maintained throughout what was, after all, a long and demanding performance. It would be invidious to single out any of the players in particular - all got 10/10 from us. The Duke of Kent's garden provided a lovely setting, and the staff played their part well, too. Really impressive.

    The meal before the performance was lovely and both my friend who had never seen a Shakespeare before and I thoroughly enjoyed the fun filled performance. Looking forward to more of the same.
