Date Posted:16/07/2015

Taming of the ShrewEnjoy a sumptuous evening under the stars with Illyria company production of ‘The Taming of the Shrew’. The two and a half hour performance will take place in Linford Manor Park, on Friday 7th August 2015, gates open at 6.30pm the performance begins at 7.30pm.

Everyone wants to marry mild-mannered Bianca. No-one wants to marry her acid-tongued older sister Kate. Their father won’t let anyone marry Bianca until a husband can be found for Kate – but no-one knows anyone mad enough to take her on. Until Petruchio comes to town. Sparks are guaranteed to fly in Shakespeare’s rumbustious battle-of-the-sexes comedy, where nobody is exactly who they appear to be!  

Artistic Director of Illyria, Oliver Gray said: “Illyria has been bringing top-quality open air theatre to The Parks Trust in Milton Keynes since 2006.  We are thrilled to have been invited back to perform in the beautiful grounds of Linford Manor Park - and we promise an evening of romance and rip-roaring wit!”

Julie Dawes Events & Recreation Co-ordinator at The Parks Trust said: “This is an open-air event for all the family to enjoy. We are pleased that Illyria are able to revisit Linford Manor during their busy tour schedule. Bring along a picnic and sit and watch a performance of Shakespeare’s: The Taming of the shew under the stars.”

Please bring seating and warm clothes.  The audience are also welcome to bring picnics. Gazebos and BBQs are strictly forbidden, and no pets are allowed on site during the performance.
