About This Show

Artistic director Barbara Gaines reexamines Shakespeare’s notorious “battle of the sexes” with an all-woman company. She partners with playwright Ron West (Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s The Comedy of Errors) to frame Shakespeare’s story as a performance by a group of suffragettes on the eve of the passing of the 19th Amendment.
