Taming Kate: Lisa Dillon

Taming Kate

Lisa Dillon has played a number of Shakespeare's women in her career to date, but none more physically than Kate from The Taming of the Shrew. Lisa explains why she has historically been turned off Shakespeare, how interrogating the idea of a modern-day shrew lead her to create Kate as an outrageous mess of a woman, and why she rejects the scholarship around the character.
