The Taming of the Shrew arrives after 400 some years of production with the baggage of being seen as the ultimate comical archetype of the battle of the sexes. This virtual workshop reading will explore how the play resonates without male voices and how these characters and actors interact and relate when we interrogate gender played as a game and the complexities of affairs of the heart.


A live, post-show discussion will immediately follow the reading.
