About this event:
Avant Bard presents a world premiere by one of DC’s most provocative young playwrights—an explosive domestic drama set in Texas in the 1960s. A wildly creative and spirited young poet named Cat returns to her hometown grieving the suicide of her lesbian lover. Her religious parents are dead-set on forcing her to submit and conform. They hire a firebrand youth minister named Patrick try to tame her—but Cat fights back.
A rejoinder to The Taming of the Shrew from a woman’s point of view, TAME. is every bit as epic, comic, and darkly erotic as the Shakespeare play that provoked it.
All of WSC Avant Bard’s previews, Thursday evening, and Saturday matinees performances are Pay What You Will. There is a $10 minimum for online purchases, and no minimum when purchasing at the box office day-of.
