Shakespeare by the Sea 2017 - Macbeth  Shakespeare by the Sea 2017 - Taming of the Shrew
“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” Seduced by supernatural prophecy, Macbeth and his Lady embark on an ambitious quest to win the Scottish Throne. In the aftermath of their success, we glimpse a world torn apart when a volatile, paranoid tyrant becomes King.

When rebellious Katherina stands in the way of her younger sister Bianca's marriage, fortune hunter Petruchio is enlisted to "tame" the elder daughter, freeing a path for Bianca's motley suiters. From their first meeting, sparks fly and the ultimate battle of the sexes ensues - leaving us to wonder, who is taming who?
