THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
JUNE 16 – AUGUST 12
“She is my good, my chattels, she is my house,
My household stuff, my field, my barn,
My horse, my ox, my ass, my anything…”
–The Taming of the Shrew, Act 3, Scene 2
Lucentio loves Bianca, but society’s rules (and her father’s bad temper) prevent her marrying until her older sister Katherina weds. But Katherina is strong-willed, outspoken, and not interested in marriage – three strikes against any woman in an era where females were considered property and required to be submissive. How much has changed in the 400 years since this play was published? See Shakespeare’s misogynistic masterwork through new eyes in ASC’s fresh staging.
Directed by José Zayas.
