The Taming of the Shrew

Performance Dates

Director Ed Sylvanus Iskandar brings his unique, interactive style to D.C. with a provocative new approach to The Taming of the Shrew. This all-male, gender-blurred production explores the complex machinations of Kate and Petruchio’s relationship. Known for his epic, immersive performance-style works (The Mysteries), Iskandar examines identity, authenticity, and gender roles within one of Shakespeare’s most notorious texts.

Director Ed Sylvanus Iskandar and The Taming of the Shrew are underwritten by the Clarice Smith Series: New Directors for the Classics.
