In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son to the highest bidder, setting off an explosive battle of the sexes. The Royal Shakespeare Company turns The Bard’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.
