CSC Presents As The Taming Of The Shrew at Hall Barn - June 2015


What an amazing evening - I'm still buzzing next morning.

writes Sandra Carter in the BuckFree Press.

Sandra Carter went along to review Chiltern Shakespeare Company's production of The Taming of the Shrew at the Open Air Theatre, Hall Barn, Beaconsfield.

What an amazing evening - I'm still buzzing next morning. Turn off the busy A40 onto a beautiful parkland estate, picnic beside the lake or snack in the bar marquee, then find your seat and prepare for a trip to 16th-century Italy.

Before us on the lawn is the set of the pretty town of Padua, visible through a portico, with Baptista's house and balcony covered in flowers, a fountain to the side, steps up to a (real) tower, and an archway leading out of town topped by a parapet where townsfolk watch goings-on below.
