ANOTHER SELL OUT AT FARNHAM CASTLE !
Guildburys celebrated their 21st year at the castle in style with this new adaptation of Shakespeare’s much loved tale of the battle of the sexes. The stormy relationship between the colourfully eccentric Petruchio and his scornful and unwilling bride Katharina was played against the magnificent castle backdrop, transformed into an Elizabethan playhouse – home to The Lord Bishop’s company – whose boisterous actors were to be found carousing in the adjacent Blue Boar Tavern, (complete with comely serving wenches !) as they waited for Master Shakespeare to complete the final scene of his play.
The weather may not have been as kind as it could have been, but it did nothing to dampen the enjoyment and loyalty of capacity audiences.
