Avant Bard presents an explosive drama set in 1960s Texas about a wildly creative and spirited young poet named Cat. Grieving the suicide of her lesbian lover, Cat goes home to her religious parents, who are dead-set on forcing her to submit and conform. They hire a firebrand minister named Patrick to try to tame her — but Cat fights back. A rejoinder to The Taming of the Shrew from a woman's point of view, TAME. is every bit as darkly comic and enthralling as the Shakespeare play that provoked it.

Recommended for ages 13 and up. Contains themes of violence.
