Genre: Classical, Comedy
Written by William Shakespeare, Directed by James Jennings

In THE TAMING OF THE SHREW Kate, the witty waspish shrew must be married off before her younger tamer sister. Petruchio who comes in search of a wife, must woo the wildcat Kate. A touching battle-of-the-sexes ensues, in which an unwilling bride has it out with her husband-to-be while he starves her out of her sulks! This slapstick, misogynistic, controversial tale will leave you laughing all the way home!
