Taming of the Shrew

Directed by Caitlin Lowans, written by William Shakespeare
July 6, 2023- July 30, 2023

Wednesday through Sunday at 7pm

“I see a woman may be made a fool/If she had not a spirit to resist.” Will’s original battle of wills, staged in an Elizabethan England every bit as stylized and strict as we always imagine it, with one key difference: this society is a matriarchy. We’re reversing traditional hierarchies to breathe new life into the Shrew you thought you knew. Kate and Petruchia, equals in intellect, impudence, and perhaps even infatuation learn to balance identity and belonging, with plenty of sniping, head-butting, and comic brilliance along the way.
