SHREW

AT The Storefront Theatre / Feb 10-11, 2014

AT Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace / Feb 15-March 2, 2014

The beautiful and gentle Bianca has no shortage of admirers, but her mother insists that she will not marry until her older sister, Katharina, is betrothed. The only problem is that Katharina is the wildest, loudest, maddest shrew in the Klondike. It's a low-down showdown with honky-tonk, puppetry, slapstick, and Vaudeville charm, and one of these gunslingers will either go broke or strike gold.

In his directorial debut, rising Stratford Festival star and RedOne Theatre veteran Tyrone Savage gathers together Toronto’s premier emerging talents for the first time in this one-of-a-kind production.

PRESS

“Take Shakespeare's The Taming Of The Shrew, edit it a bit, add some commedia dell'arte improv, mix in a good dose of the Marx Brothers, and you have Red One's take on the comedy, here called Shrew.”
