    In the English countryside, a poor tinker named Christopher Sly becomes the target of a prank by a local lord. Finding Sly drunk out of his wits in front of an alehouse, the lord has his men take Sly to his manor, dress him in his finery, and treat him as a lord. When Sly recovers, the men tell him that he is a lord and that he only believes himself to be a tinker because he has been insane for the past several years. Waking in the lord’s bed, Sly at first refuses to accept the men’s story, but when he hears of his “wife,” a pageboy dressed in women’s clothing, he readily agrees that he is the lord they purport him to be. Sly wants to be left alone with his wife, but the servants tell him that a troupe of actors has arrived to present a play for him. The play that Sly watches makes up the main story of The Taming of the Shrew.

      「馴服女人」這種主題讓許多現代人不以為然。其實早在1611年,John Fletcher就曾為女人喉舌,寫了《馴悍記》續集,讓男主角皮楚丘反過來遭到第二任妻子的奚落與羞辱。現代有許多《馴悍記》的演出,也會刪除或減少凱瑟琳對皮楚丘的臣服,有的導演甚至暗示了凱瑟琳最後的那一段話,並非代表真正地心悅誠服。
