02/14/2019 Student Affairs, College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences

EAST, GREENSBORO, N.C. (Feb. 14, 2019) – Beginning Thursday, Feb. 14, the Theatre Arts Program at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will present Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.”

In this raucous rom-com, love and power reach a fever pitch as Petruchio is challenged to tame the beautiful and strong-willed Katherine. The theatre program’s new spin on Shakespeare’s comedic battle of the sexes will have audiences pondering many of the issues about gender that confront our society.

“We are in a very dynamic and turbulent time, especially with regard to gender politics, and this production will highlight that women are powerful in more ways than we could ever imagine,” said Xulee-Vanecia J. Love, play director.

Blending outlandish farce with urban style and heightened language, this production asks the question, "who is taming who?"
