Presented in Living Black & White™ !
Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew is presented in the style of the 1950’s sitcom I Love Lucy. This retro aesthetic will both amplify the humor and confront the story’s sexism, bringing out a dissonant twist reminiscent of The Twilight Zone. This show is presented in Living Black and White™ courtesy of Pegasus Theatre. With costumes, sets, and full makeup all in gray-scale, we’ll create the illusion of watching a 50’s TV show come to life.
Content Warning: This play explores themes of misogyny and domestic abuse against women and female-presenting bodies. There are depictions of verbal abuse, slapstick violence, and simulated alcohol use. Be advised this show may be inappropriate for children under 13.
