Description

It’s Shakespeare at its naughtiest in this hilarious sex-positive retelling of The Taming of the Shrew!

In Madame Baptista’s famed house of ill-repute, proud Mistress Kate must dominate over Peter Pluck, else lose herself to his command, while young Luke and fair Bianca fling themselves headlong into hormone-driven romance and forbidden love. High art meets tongue-in-cheek in six outrageous episodes of comedy, sex, and foul language!

Written, directed and produced by Joseph Stephen Leonardo.
