Anna Windass - The Taming of the Shrew

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog June 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Debbie Rush is doing a wonderful job as Street shrew Anna Windass in Coronation Street.

But has Anna gone too far and could she ever be redeemed, I wonder?  I do hope so, I always liked Anna when she was with Eddie, and her relationship with Gary is superb.  But if she's not careful, Anna is going to push everyone away from her, not just pushing Kevin into Erica's arms.

The Shakespeare play Taming of the Shrew is described by the RSC as this: "Shakespeare’s comedy about a prank on the local drunk, intertwined relationships and the dramatic transformation of an ill-tempered woman."

Well, Anna certainly is that ill-tempered woman. She was ill-tempered and nasty even before David Platt set fire to her and she went on anti-depressants and lost her libido. On which note, she and Kevin were never a good match, in my books.

Do you think Anna could - or should - be redeemed? Do you want her to keep Kevin or dump him like a pot of garage gunk?
