An adaptation of Shakespeare's ''[[The Taming of the Shrew]]'' by [[Charles Marowitz]]. The  acclaimed 1975 production was performed at The Studio in the Sydney Opera House. Refashioned as a gothic tale, the adaptation removed all the comedy, and instead concentrated on examining the themes of sadism and brain washing, with a misogynistic Petruchio raping and beating Katherina and driving her mad. The play divided critics, though many celebrated it as a genuinely original and relevant treatment of a difficult Shakespeare text.
