Shakespeare at Winedale’s 2014 Summer Class returns to the McKinney Avenue Contemporary for their first touring performance of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Shakespeare at Winedale Director James Loehlin says, “The Taming of the Shrew has always been as popular as it is controversial, with its boisterous and energetic account of wooing as an all-out ‘battle of the sexes.’ We may not wholly endorse the play’s picture of love and marriage, but I think we can still find it entertaining and thought-provoking.” A perpetual audience favorite, The Taming of the Shrew will delight with its fast paced humor. Shakespeare’s outrageous comedy follows the courtship of the clever and sharp-tongued Katarina and the facetious, fortune-seeking Petruchio. Set on marrying the spirited Kate, Petruchio discovers that the road to matrimony is filled with scintillating sarcasm and tumultuous tomfoolery. Shakespeare at Winedale is a University of Texas program in which students study and perform Shakespeare at the Winedale Historical Complex near Round Top. Since its founding by English professor James Ayres in 1970, the program’s unique, hands-on approach has brought Shakespeare’s words to life for hundreds of students and thousands of audience members. University students from many disciplines and backgrounds work together for six weeks at Winedale, ending their summer with four weekends of performances in a converted nineteenth-century hay barn.
