Saved by the Bell Jar: The Taming of the Shrew
Renowned as Shakespeare's most boisterous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew is the tale of two young men -- the hopeful Lucentio and the worldly Petruchio -- and the two sisters they meet in Padua. Lucentio falls in love with Bianca, the apparently ideal younger daughter of the wealthy Baptista Minola. But before they can marry, Bianca's formidable elder sister, Katherine, must be wed. Petruchio, interested only in the huge dowry, arranges to marry Katherine -- against her will -- and enters into a battle of the sexes that has endured as one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable works.
Meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Angel's Island Coffee. For more information please contact Julia Hendon at 256-881-0257 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
