Every summer, Maynardville Open Air Theatre in Wynberg puts on a Shakespeare play, and this is without doubt the highlight of my theatre year. We have been going as a family for many, many years now, and each performance has been wonderfully fresh and creative. Just as Shakespeare's plays were intended to be performed! It is such a treat to see what interpretation has been put on the chosen play.
This year was The Taming of the Shrew, complete with Italian Cirque-du-Soleil-like performers and life size animal puppets and two comic performances from Darren Aurajo as Tranio and Juliet Jenkin as Grumio that were outstanding! Interestingly, it was The Taming of the Shrew that was the first play to be performed here in 1956.
