    Raising daughters – Taming of the Shrew

    Raising daughters – Taming of the Shrew

    Single fathers raising daughters is a feature in many of Shakespeare’s plays. It reflected the unfortunate reality that many women died in child birth. It also helped drive narratives stemming from these fathers being unsure of how to tackle the challenge of parenting their daughters in a society that wasn’t built to support such relationships, or that offered women much in the way of opportunity. On this episode of the Quality Time podcast, Lee Lewis is joined by John McNeil and Claudia Ware to discuss the father/daughter relationships in Taming of the Shrew.

    It's complicated! – Taming of the Shrew

    There is nothing easy about performing Shakespeare.

Today Lee Lewis is joined by Taming of the Shrew cast members Ellen, Leon and Patrick to discuss how they’ve not only faced these challenges but embraced them.
