THE TAMING OF THE SHREW is Shakespeare's timeless comedy in which role-playing reaches new heights. Baptista has two daughters—the sharp-tongued Katherina and the mild Bianca. Many suitors seek Bianca's hand, but her father refuses to let her marry until a husband is found for her sister, Kate. And Petruchio just might be “a husband for her turn.” In rotation with TAMING is THE ROVER, an English Restoration comedy by Aphra Behn, one of the the first successful female playwrights. A group of exiled cavaliers seeks love and fulfillment in Naples during Carnival-time. A commentary on class, love, and the balance of power between the sexes.
