The Taming of the Shrew

"And where two raging fires meet together
They do consume the thing that feeds their fury"

Smart, passionate, and mad as hell, Kate wants nothing to do with marriage or men. But in Padua, marriage and money are the name of the game, and Kate’s younger sister Bianca is the ultimate prize. Alas for Padua’s vying bachelors, Bianca can’t marry ‘til her sister gets hitched. So when the wild renegade Petruchio arrives in Padua in search of a wife (and her dowry), he and Kate collide in a battle of wills that could change the rules of their world forever.

Shakespeare’s explosive and provocative comedy stirs up questions about love, power, identity, and wealth, compelling us to examine the rules of our world and the roles we play inside it.
