SHREWISH, adapted & directed by Barbara Zahora
Shakespeare’s angel faced gang tames a bad boy Kate in this sassy, gender swapping version of Taming of the Shrew. Adapted and directed by Barbara Zahora, SHREWISH is a sexy romp through a wild night, as street-smart sweethearts pull the ultimate gender “switcheroo.” Petruchio, a woman of color, tames Kate, a man, with a little hustle from her shady, beautiful crew. Funding for SHREWISH is made possible by grants from the Chicago Community Trust Foundation and the Puffin Foundation.
