    Summary

    The Woman's Prize, or the Tamer Tamed is a Jacobean comedy written by John Fletcher. It was first published in the first Beaumont and Fletcher folio of 1647, though it was written several decades earlier (likely 1611).

    The play is a sequel to Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, in which (as the subtitle indicates) the gender tables are turned and Petruchio the "tamer" is "tamed" by his second wife Maria, whom he marries after the death of Katherine. As a "reply" to Shakespeare's play, The Woman's Prize attracted critical attention in later generations and centuries. Maria's principal weapon, a sex-strike, shows the influence of Aristophanes' play Lysistrata.

    Pedro and Jaques are minor servant/comedic characters in Fletcher's play, who seemingly run off together in Act Five, Scene Two to never be heard from again. In 2004, I served as a dramaturgy intern for the Shakespeare Santa Cruz Production of the play, this little playette was written as a gift to the cast.

    It is ridiculously obscure, but there are dirty jokes in iambic pentameter. So there you go.

    Summary

    INSPIRED BY "Pride and Prejudice" TIME-TRAVEL STORY!
    In 2014 Lizzie Stuart learns that things aren’t what they seem when she finds an old diary of hers.

    "My real name is Elizabeth Beatrice Stuart. I was born on 14th December 1992. Here I go under the name of Miss Elizabeth Rogers and it's now 5th April 1815. I was informed this morning that I'm betrothed against my will to the most infuriating man I've ever met - Lord Alexander Thorpe…"

    Summary

    Short synopsis: Kate and Petruchio return home post-final-curtain, and celebrate their confoundment of Kate's family by returning their relationship to its normal dynamic.

    This fic is especially for those who might find The Taming of the Shrew a bit . . . problematic, even through a historical lens, unless heavy doses of mitigating subtext are projected into the mix. This is subtext that may help, or at least make a difference. (Or possibly ruin the play for you forever, in which case, oops, you probably should have read the tags and warnings more carefully.)

    Warnings: BDSM (consensual); some sexual content

    Summary

    “Now, I shall tell you a tale. This is a tale long past telling, as it has been a decade since the events took place. Many of you shall be amazed at what I am about to recollect - though I would wager there are those of you who remember how things once were.

     

    “This, then, is the tale I call ‘The Taming of the Agent’.”

    Summary

    There's so much of Shakespeare's plays that we don't see - how do relationships start? What happens when characters are offstage? How do these relationships continue after the play ends? An assignment I did for my Shakespeare class - well, and some added bits. The two heftiest chapters are Titus Andronicus and the Henry plays.
