The Taming of the Shrew

 

With a sharp tongue and a volcanic temper, the headstrong Kate bows down to no man. But then a dubious suitor named Petruchio swaggers out of the woods and into the trailer park with a mischievous plan to reach her guarded heart. Played out in a forgotten corner of rural America, their comic courtship is a no-holds-barred battle of the sexes that results in a love and understanding that neither one imagined.

The Merchant of Venice

 

Hot markets make Venice a glamorous and high-living city.  Fortunes are made in an instant and lost in a heartbeat.  After striking a lethal bargain with the moneylender Shylock, Antonio faces the knife when his income from his ships suddenly evaporates. He must now rely upon a resourceful heiress-turned-lawyer, Portia, to prevent the deadly disaster. In a thrilling courtroom conclusion, the disguised young woman swings into action in one of Shakespeare’s most popular and controversial plays.
