Presented by Shakespeare Theatre Company
The Taming of the Shrew
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar
“Why are our bodies soft and weak and smooth…
But that our soft conditions and our hearts
Should well agree with our external parts?”
Spilling from the stage into the lobbies and the street, Director Ed Sylvanus Iskandar’s production presents a provocative new approach to The Taming of the Shrew and an utterly unique audience experience. This all-male, gender-blurred production explores the complex machinations of Kate and Petruchio’s relationship. Known for his epic, immersive performance-style works (The Mysteries), Iskandar examines identity, authenticity, and gender roles within one of Shakespeare’s most notorious texts.
