Two brothers are being married off. Bernardo is hell-bent on it and can’t wait to fly the nest, while Kristopher balks at the thought of losing his independence and struggles to think of anything worse. While that is all well and good, there is one hitch. Kit has to marry first in order for Bernardo, who has no shortage of offers, to be allowed to wed. Who will get hitched to Kit, the fabulous and ungovernable shrew? Perhaps Petruchia might take him on for a bet; she’s a bit of a gold-digger and as wild and rebellious as our Kit...

Alchemy Theatre returns to The Bernie Legge theatre for this hiliarious, laugh out loud co-production with Vagabond Players. With an incredible gender swapped cast and a diesel punk theme, this is a production that you will have to see to believe!
