QUIRKY FASHION: The Taming of the Shew in Urdu

This isn't so much about fashion, but I thought it deserved a mention because it I love plays like this, with cross-over themes, and where they are translated in different ways. The Taming of the Shrew has been taken from it's original Shakespeare context and re-interpreted in a Punjabi and Lahori setting. I especially love the fact that after good reviews during its showings in Lahore, the show has come to London as well (and I think will  be visiting other cities) in their 'Globe to Globe' campaign.
I'm considering checking this out as it will be showing next weekend, and the tickets look fairly reasonable - after all, who can resist a girl in a traditional lachi?!
