The Taming, by Lauren Gunderson



Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center (289 Main Street, Greenfield, MA 01301, Greenfield MA)

In Lauren Gunderson’s hilarious, raucous farce, inspired by Shakespeare’s ***Shrew***, beauty pageant contestant Katherine (Tahmie Der) has aspirations beyond the sash and crown – but she needs the help of ultra-conservative Senator’s aide Pat (Stephanie Carlson*) and ultra-liberal eco-terrorist Bianca (Tracy Einstein). It takes a trip back to 1770 for Kate to find an unexpected compromise that is timely and fresh.

Mary Corinne Miller directs this fresh, feisty comedy in The Perch at Hawks & Reed, Greenfield. In the interest of audience comfort and protection, we do require that patrons are masked during the performance (masks provided at the Box Office). Free on-street parking; handicapped accessible.
