Shakespeare in Berkshire

This year's Progress Theatre Shakespeare is The Taming of the Shrew - but set in the Wild West where men were men and so were some of the women. The sheriff and the undertaker both want to marry the saloon keeper's beautiful daughter, but they must first find a husband for Kate, her hellcat of a sister. When Petruchio and his sidekick ride in, it looks like their prayers have been answered, but these are not the only strangers in town and there's plenty of trouble brewing... Think you know Shakespeare? You ain't seen nothin' yet.

Performance dates are as follows: Taming of the Shrew, Monday 14 July to Saturday 26 July (except Sunday). Tickets £25, £20, £14

All performances start at 7.45pm and concessions get £1 off. Also, you can get one ticket to any third week show at half price at the same time as booking a ticket to the Shakespeare.

Tickets for all these events are now on sale via Reading Arts, at the Hexagon or Town Hall. Book online at www.readingarts.com/othervenues/whatson or telephone 0118 9606060. Reading Arts have put their booking fee up to £2.50, so get a group together and all buy your tickets at the same time. Have a look at the Forbury's pre-show dinner deal, too.
