  The Taming of the Shrew at Chicago Shakespeare Theater

The Taming of the Shrew

Chicago Shakespeare Theater
800 East Grand Avenue Chicago

For the first time in 25 years, Royal Shakespeare Company returns to Chicago with the must-see theatrical event of 2020. Director Justin Audibert turns Shakespeare's provocative comedy on its head, setting it in a matriarchal society. Women hold the power, control the state, and own the property. In a world where men have no authority, Lady Baptista is selling off her two sons to the highest bidder. Reversing the traditional gender of each role, the RSC's production creates a new environment in which the power dynamics of today can be explored through a 400-year-old text. After thrilling audiences in Stratford-upon-Avon and across the UK, this explosive battle of the sexes promises to be unlike any Shrew you've ever seen.
