The Taming of the Shrew
Set amidst the whiskey sipping chauvinism of early 1960, quiet's Mad Men-esque production of The Taming of the Shrew continues the investigation of our season-long theme, "enGender Bender: Exploring our social blueprints", through the eyes of Shakespeare's classic comedy.

Baptista Minola, senior partner of Padua Advertising, has a problem.  His youngest daughter Bianca has been drawing the attention of nearly every man on the Upper East Side. His solution?  No one will be allowed to "court" Bianca until his oldest daughter  the headstrong, fiery, and temperamental Katharina  is married.  After all, who would want a wife like Kate?

Seeing the play is only half of the event...

As an organization, quiet places a high priority on providing practical ways in which people can take active steps to become engaged in change. One of the ways we are staged to do this is by intentionally partnering with local, social organizations that are involved in addressing issues of gender  quiet's 2011 season theme. Each night of the production will sponsor a different partner organization. After each performance, the sponsored organization will participate in a community discussion about gender issues presented in the play. Panelists for the discussion will include actors, technicians, community members, academic instructors as well as representatives from the partner organization. A key component of these discussions is creating a place for dialogue; thus, YOU are encouraged to present questions and participate in the discussion. Come be a part of the conversation.

quiet is an Associated Program of Shunpike.

Doors open at 7:30pm. No assigned seating. Parking available in the offices across the street as well as street parking. Rainier Valley Cultural Center is located just north of the Columbia City Library.
