John Fletcher's The Woman's Prize of The Tamer Tamed performed by the Shakespeare at Winedale Summer Class - Staged Reading
Sun, July 27, 2014 • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM • Winedale Theater Barn - Near Round Top, Texas
This summer’s plays focus on love; from the first exciting days of courtship, to the trials of marriage, to devastating heartbreak, Shakespeare wrote about it all. Shakespeare at Winedale Director, James Loehlin says, “The Taming of the Shrew, an early play, presents a boisterous and energetic account of wooing as an all-out 'battle of the sexes'; The Merry Wives of Windsor takes a more mature perspective on middle-aged couples, asserting that 'Wives may be merry, and yet honest too'; and Troilus and Cressida, from Shakespeare's tragic period, is a shrewd and complex look at love in the context of war.”
Join us for a special staged reading of John Fletcher’s The Woman’s Prize, or The Tamer Tamed, a sequel to Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. In The Tamer Tamed, Kate the shrew has died and Petruchio is now married to the even more difficult Maria, who will stop at nothing to teach her husband a lesson.The reading will begin at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students as well as UT faculty and staff.
Performances are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7:30pm, with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students as well as UT faculty and staff, and may be ordered online through the Shakespeare at Winedale website.
