Petruchio costume sketch

Petruchio costume sketch for The Taming of the Shrew designed by Susan Benson (1991).

Speaking of her design process for The Taming of the Shrew in 1992, Benson explained: “My choice of fabrics comes from the way my pen behaves on paper. I know where I want to go with the shape and feel of it. In Shrew I use pastels which are quite soft and changeable.”
