Genre: Classical, Comedy
directed by Bridget Leak

The Taming of the Shrew follows Katherine, a free spirit, thrust into a sect of men in need of submissive women. Set in the heart of the FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints), this cunning new production of The Taming of the Shrew challenges the puritanical confinement of women still in existence in 21st Century America. Shakespeare’s play has been interpreted in many different ways; the play's apparent misogynistic elements have become the subject of considerable controversy, particularly among modern audiences and readers. It has nevertheless been adapted numerous times for stage, screen, opera, and musical theatre; perhaps the most famous adaptations being Cole Porter's Kiss Me, Kate and the film 10 Things I Hate About You.
