The Taming of the Shrew
Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Adam St. John
Shakespeare's rowdy, screwball comedy The Taming of the Shrew follows the treacherous road to romance for a strong-willed pair of lovers who've met their ultimate match in one another. Until Kate has a husband, her sweet younger sister, Bianca, cannot marry -- but feisty, fiery-tongued Kate rejects every suitor who tries to woo her. Along comes Petruchio, willing to take a chance...and her sizable dowry. His efforts to "tame" her remain a controversial aspect of this tale, reminding us of the expected gender roles of 400 years past, and how far we have and haven't come since.
