Broads’ Word Ensemble is proud to announce our premiere production: Fifty Shades of Shrew.
Coming to the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2015 in June
“Place your hands below your husband’s foot.” Surely a controversial statement in Shakespeare’s time, in today’s world it is hopelessly misogynistic. Unless… What if Katharina is a submissive in search of her Dominant? What if Bianca is a Dom auditioning subs? With the success of Fifty Shades of Grey, BDSM is front and center in the public consciousness, but is still largely misunderstood. Broads’ Word Theatre sets Shakespeare’s outdated Taming of the Shrew in a BDSM dungeon, where the all-female cast investigates the dynamics of power and submission with a modern fearlessness.
