SYNOPSIS: What do you get when you strand a class of intrepid teens in an an abandoned hunting cabin during a raging thunderstorm with only "The Bard in a Box: The Taming of the Shrew" to keep them occupied? A recipe for hilarity! In their attempts to embody the directions to BYOD (Bring Your Own Drama!), the students ransack the house for props in an attempt to stage their own rollicking version of one of Shakespeare's classic comedies. With no prior experience in Elizabethan drama, these kids present Shakespeare quite literally as you have never seen him before, with many questions, confusions, anachronisms, mispronunciations — and, of course, laughs! — along the way.
