A Shrew’d New Comedy by Will Shakespeare and Penny Ashton

Sicily’s beloved King Enzo is dead.

Now Princess Rosa, a stroppy spinster, must navigate the tempestuous waters of belching Step-Fathers, lusty suitors, popping cod pieces and menopausal witches, to face her destiny.

Award Winning Comedian Penny Ashton (Promise and Promiscuity, Olive Copperbottom) presents her latest literary solo musical with this Shakespearean frolic. She’ll spark 13 characters into life in an Elizabethan tale of magic, meddling and puffed bull’s pizzles.

“..a well-crafted and deftly performed production of a witty and intelligent show. I very much appreciate the skilful use of Shakespearean material throughout.” Theatreview

“… a funny and clever romp…an excellently written script that Shakespeare himself would be proud of.” Theatrescenes
