About this show

A group of actors discover the quarrelsome and quaffed Sly berating a bar hostess. When he passes out in their midst, they conspire to teach him a lesson by acting out a new play about Kate the Shrew; but their show soon takes on a life of its own, teaching the actors that love strikes when you least expect it. Seven actors play all twenty-three roles in this fast and furious telling of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, a classic play-within-a-play comic bonanza about the most terrifying woman in Italy, the man who wants to marry her, and finding love in disguise. Appropriate for ages: 12+ The Taming of the Shrew is presented in repertory with Silence and The Mammy Project.
