In this comedy of bad manners and uncouth courtship, boorish Petruchio and rebellious Katherina are equally matched—it’s the playing field that isn’t level. As the #metoo phenomenon and Time’s Up movement stoke social change, Shakespeare’s controversial “battle of the sexes” tale—romantic comedy, blistering satire, or both?—affords an opportunity to explore toxic masculinity and the struggle of women to assert their full identities in a world some men believe belongs to them. This modern-dress adaptation will reflect contemporary attitudes and question the stories men tell about women. Approximately 11 men and 4 women will be cast.
