The Taming of the Shrew(s) is an original adaptation of Shakespeare's play that gives audiences three very different interpretations of the complex relationship between Katherine and Petruchio as an over-the-top comedy, a tragedy of abuse, and a genuine love story.

Three Katherines and three Petrucchios vividly demonstrate how we understand the nature and extent of Katherine's "taming" is all up to actors and audiences to define!
