Wednesday 26th June 2019, Doors open 6.30pm for 7pm start
Live Cinema Isle of Man – theatrical screening from the Royal Shakespeare Company.
In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her daughter Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.
Justin Audibert (Snow in Midsummer, The Jew of Malta) turns Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.
★★★★ – ‘A landmark production as women take charge’ – Evening Standard
