Taming of the Shrew
By William Shakespeare

Fortune-hunting Hortensio, rich old Gremio and newly-arrived-in-town Lucentio all wish to court beautiful Bianca, but she cannot marry before her older sister, the shrewish Kate.  Petruchio vows to woo Kate both for her dowry and for the challenge of overcoming her fearsome reputation.  Hortensio and Lucentio gain access to Bianca by disguising themselves as tutors, while Lucentio’s servant Tranio plays the role of his master.
