Tamer Tamed, The

Synopsis
Television drama. A sequel to The Taming of the Shrew written by Elaine Morgan which depicts, in cod-Shakespearean blank verse, how Katharina and Petruchio have fared after a year of marriage. Baptista has recalled his daughters to Padua, and on the journey back Bianca and Katharina are less tame than their husbands would have them be.
