RSC CLASSICS - a series of rarely performed plays from the 16th and 17th centuries, published alongside their resurrection by the RSC in Stratford and the West End in 2002/03.

An irreverent and hugely entertaining 'sequel' to The Taming of the Shrew, in which Petruchio marries for a second time and is tamed by his wife Maria in a reversal of roles echoing Aristophanes' Lysistrata. It was written in 1611 and published alongside its production at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2003, directed by Gregory Doran.

Written twenty years after Shakespeare's original, The Tamer Tamed is also a revealing insight into changing attitudes to women and marriage in the Jacobean period.

Edited with an introduction by Gordon McMullan and preface by Gregory Doran.

The plays in the RSC Classics series reflect the diversity of styles, themes and subjects of the Elizabethan and Jacobean stage, and include a 'new' addition to the Shakespeare canon.
