Adapted and directed by Toby Vera Bercovici
This play tells the story of Katherina Minola, a fiercely independent young woman held in captivity by her father and then sold into marriage to the highest bidder. Her husband, Petruchio, recognizes her brilliance, and, in his words, the “two raging fires meet together [and] consume the thing that feeds their fury.” Shakespeare’s passionate love story and searing critique of gender roles is turned here into a fresh and politically relevant musical adaptation.

Performances are December 1-2 at 7:30pm in Strider Theatre, Runnals Union, Colby College. Tickets are free and can be claimed at the door or reserved online at www.colby.edu/theaterdance/productions/see-a-show/
