Grab your blankets and picnic baskets as once again RTI presents our Shakespeare On The Lawn series at Salisbury House & Gardens. 

Shakespeare’s hilarious battle of the sexes is an all out comedic romp. The beautiful and gentle Bianca has no shortage of admirers, but her father insists that she will not marry until her shrewish sister, Kate, is betrothed. Kate meets her match when the haughty bachelor Petruchio takes her for his bride. Their verbal sparring and physical battles not only provide some of Shakespeare’s wittiest repartee, but also beg the ultimate question of just who is taming who.
