Event Details

Shakespeare’s comedy The Taming of the Shrew follows the treacherous road to romance for a strong-willed pair of lovers who’ve met their ultimate match in one another. Until Kate has a husband, her sweet younger sister, Bianca, cannot marry — but feisty, fiery-tongued Kate rejects every suitor who tries to woo her. Along comes Petruchio, willing to take a chance…and her sizable dowry. His efforts to “tame” her remain a controversial aspect of this tale, reminding us of the expected gender roles of 400 years past, and how far we have and haven’t come since.
