The first collaboration between PPA and Washington University's Prison Education Project,  

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!
