Additional Information

William Shakespeare’s controversial comedy is an explosive battle between two hard-headed women, Katherine and Petruchio. At the behest of her friend Hortensio, Petruchio attempts to dominate the unruly Katherine and win her hand — not to mention her sizable fortune.

This production, set amidst the Gay and Lesbian Liberation movements of the early 1990s, looks at the prejudices, hierarchies, and abuses that exist within queer communities, especially when it comes to deciding who should be in power.

Directed by Shayna Maci Warner and assistant directed by Phoebe Balson.
