The Taming of the Shrew

Looks like this event has already taken place.

800 E. Grand Ave., Chicago, IL 60611

This fall, Artistic Director Barbara Gaines re-examines Shakespeare's notorious "battle of the sexes." On the eve of the passing of of the 19th Amendment in 1919, a band of Suffragettes embarks on a production of The Taming of the Shrew. Framed with additional text by Ron West, longtime performer and writer at Second City, this new interpretation features an all-woman cast to explore one of the Bard's most delightfully controversial comedies. Shakespeare's men are seen through the eyes of women, as sexual politics and power, human rights, and true love are debated with wit and style.
