The Tamer Tamed

by John Fletcher
Directed by Liana Olear

The 1600's fanfiction sequel to Taming of the Shrew continues the story with Petruchio's second marriage, exploring gender relations and ways for women to reclaim their agency in a vastly unequal society.

The Rude Mechanicals are dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment, and welcome actors of all races, genders, ethnicities, ages and abilities.

Actors of all genders are encouraged to audition for all roles; the character genders and pronouns will be retained as per original text.

All rehearsals and performances will be conducted via Zoom. Our production will focus on collaboration to find new ways to explore this emerging medium.


When: Sunday, November 29th & Monday, November 30th, 6:30-9:30 PM

Auditions will consist of sides, which can be downloaded here

Rehearsals will be scheduled Mondays-Thursdays from 7:00-10:00 PM, beginning early December

Performances: February 13th and 20th

All rehearsals, meetings, and performances will be held via Zoom. There will be no in-person requirements for this production (sadly).

We look forward to seeing you all soon, and please spread the word!
