Accompanied by his servant Tranio, Lucentio arrives in Napier to study. As soon as he sees Bianca, the younger daughter of a rich merchant Baptista, he falls in love with her. Bianca is also being wooed by old Gremio and Hortensio, but Baptista will not let her be married until a husband is found for his elder daughter, Katherina (Kate the ‘shrew’) whose aggressive nature has made this unlikely. Gremio and Hortensio decide to join forces to find a husband for Katherina.
