Summary
Meet Katherine Minola, Member of Parliament and aspiring Prime Minister. When her advisers suggest that she marry, she reacts with the same fury she brings to everything-and everyone. But one man is going to change her outlook: enter Petruchio. Screenwriter Sally Wainwright updates Shakespeare's romantic farce, with Shirley Henderson as the irascible Katherine; Jaime Murray as her supermodel sister, Bianca; and Rufus Sewell as Petruchio, the spendthrift with a heart of gold. Produced by BBC Northern Ireland and Horsebridge Productions.
