OUR PLAY

‘Tis true there is taming, but of whom, and by whom? Two impossible outsiders wrestle their way into a hitherto un-hoped for love match and the happiest (if oddest) ever-afters in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, a problematic comedy that has confounded artists, critics, and audiences for centuries. As our participation in the year long celebration of Shakespeare 400, we bring you his most famous and furious battle of the sexes. Whether you think men are from Mars or Verona, and women from Venus or Padua, this breezy, bawdy, bittersweet, wondrous wooing will set your brains and hearts reeling. There’s a mighty sting in this tale.
