Taming Of The Shrew
Lucentio has come to Padua Italy with his servant Tranio from Paris to pursue knowledge. Tranio suggests thaat he pursues pleasure too. Baptista and his daughters Katherine (the shrew) and Bianca appear with Bianca''s two suitors, Gremio and Hortensio. Baptista tell them they can''t marry Bianca untli the older sister, Katherine, is married. The reason for this is that he is tired of putting up with her. Gremio and Hortensio team up to find Katherine a husband so they can continue to pursue Bianca. As Lucentio sees this he also falls in love with Bianca. Lucentio tell Tranio to pretend to be him and his other servant, Biondello, to be Tranio''s servant so that he can be Bianca''s school teacher. When Petrucio of Verona comes with his servant Gremio to visit his friend Hortensio, Hortensio mentions the shrew to Petruchio. Petruchio promises to marry her for a very large dowry. Hortensio then pretends to be a school teacher to instruct Bianca in music. Gremio arrives with Lucentio (dressed up as a teacher) and tells hortensio of his plan to let Lucentio teach Bianca and speak well of him to her.Tranio comes and announces that he, as Lucentio, will be a suitor to Bianca.
They all go to Baptista''s house, Petruchio arrives with Hortensio (as Litio) and Gremio arrives with Lucentio (as Cambio). Tranio (as Lucentio) tells Baptista that he is also interested in Bianca. Petruchio meets Kate and the argue and this makes him more determined to mary her because he wants to "tame her". He announces to everyone that he wants to marry her on Sunday, and Kate of course doesn''t want to but she doesn''t have a choice. Baptista then tells Tranio (as Lucentio) and Gremio that the one with the highest dowry will get Bianca. Tranio says he has more wealth and possessions than Gremio, but Baptista tell him that his father Vincentio has to personally assure he has the wealth and that he will give it to Lucentio.
In Bianca''s room, Lucentio (as Cambio) and Hortensio (as Litio) teach Bianca. They both tell her they want her love, and they also begin to suspect one another of their true intentions. On the wedding day, Petruchio is late, and is dressed like a fool. He acts irrationally at the wedding and then immediately leaves town with Kate. Although Baptista is shocked he is happy to be rid of her.
At Petruchio''s home, he and Kate arrive, exhausted because the whole trip home Petruchio had been giving Kate a hard time to give her a taste of her own medicine. Back in Padua, Tranio and Hortensio spy on Lucentio (as Cambio) courting Bianca. Hortensio is upset and swears not to pursue Bianca anymore. In fact, Hortensio plans to marry a widow who loved him for a long time. Biondello then appears and tells Tranio and Lucentio he''s found a man from Mantua (a Pedant) to pretend to be Lucentio''s father Vincentio. They trick him to do this by saying people from Mantua are despised in Padua. At Petruchio''s house, he further tries to tame Kate by starving her, refusing her to have new clothes, and refusing to visit her father''s house since she continues to disagree with him, even though both know he is wrong. Back at Padua, Tranio (as Lucentio) introduces the Pedant (as Vincentio) to Baptista, and all agree to eat together. Meanwhile, Biondello instructs Lucentio to bring Bianca to the church to be married. Elsewhere, Petruchio and Kate travel on the road to Padua where they meet the real Vincentio (Lucentio''s Father). Petruchio has Kate so much under his control that he gets her to declare Vincentio is a female to his face, then to apologize and admit that he is truly a man. Petruchio informs Vincentio of his son''s marriage to Bianca, and all travel to Padua.
At Padua, Vincentio arrives and asks to see Baptista, though the Pedant (as Vincentio) and Tranio (as Lucentio) deny Vind call for him to be arrested. Lucentio himself and Bianca arrive and set things straight, then announce that they''ve been married, causing Baptista and the real Vincentio to fume even more. At length, Baptista, Vincentio, and Lucentio come to agreement and all celebrate the three marriages: Petruchio and Kate, Lucentio and Bianca, and Hortensio and the widow. At supper, Petruchio wins a wager by demonstrating that Katherine is now more obedient
