The story includes Baptista, Petruchio, Katharina, Bianca and Lucentio. Baptista is the father of Bianca, and a lot of men were trying to marry Bianca, but Bianca cant get married until her sister gets married. This is a very hard task for Kate because she is a shrew.
Hortensio tells Petruchio to marry Katharina. He decided he will marry and tame the shrew. Meanwhile, Lucentio disguises himself as a school teacher named "cambio" to get closer to Bianca. Tranio gave him an idea. "master, both our inventions jump in one. You will be the school master".
As Petruchio asked Signior Baptista if he does get her “Daughters love” then what “Dowry shall he have with Katharina to wife”. He wanted to make sure how much money he will get when he does marry Katharina. Petruchio obtains Baptistas consent to marry Katharina. And he tries to tame her, since he heard about how she is a shrew.
Petruchio takes Katharina back to Verona. His goal is to tame her at his house byr not giving her a bite to eat. “Not let her eat until she has better manners” they continue to fight and Kate continues to misbehave but his attitude is and so his her manners.
Katharina finally gives in and obeys Petruchio. She respects him and no longer acts hostile towards him. She even said that she does have feelings for him and that she wants to be married to him. Katharina “sees that it is more fun to play jokes with her husband than to fight”.
During the family dinner, the men bet on who has the best wife. The only wife that went when they called upon them was Katharina. Petruchio tells Katharina to “go fetch them hither”, after she tells a speech about how wives should obey their husbands at all times no matter what.
