froward women...

last Saturday night, Cob and i packed up a bottle of wine and a picnic dinner, jumped on our bikes and pedaled to the University where our own Fairbanks Shakespeare group was performing their annual Shakespeare play - this year was 'Taming of the Shrew'

Tucking into the wooded path that leads to the outside stage:

this is an annual tradition for us and like most events in Fairbanks, it take a village. the set is made every year by folks in town, many of the actors double as our friends in real life, local artisans make the costumes (probably because their kids at one time participated and now it's just fun), etc.

plus, they let you bring your own dinner and bottle of wine. Just think: a warm summer evening, a bottle of wine, good friends, and a play written in a language you can't hope to comprehend! here's me, brushing up on the play prior to the opening act so that i might have a clue of what's going on!

and finally, Petruchio in the beginning stages of taming his very own shrew, Kate.

The Taming of the Shrew is considered one of Shakespeare's 'difficult' plays, likely because of the commonly understood misogynistic themes. however, our actors managed to put a spin on this that highlighted the meeting of two equal spirits, rather than the subjugation of one. either way, i'll be back next year to see what the Shakespeare troupe comes up with next!
