Ticket Info:919-760-8600 Actors from the American Shakespeare Center (ASC) will perform in Jones Auditorium on the campus of Meredith College, October 17 and 18, as part of their 2017-18 Wicked Folly Tour.

ASC will present Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew on Tuesday, October 17 (with a talkback afterwards), followed by Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility on Wednesday, October 18. Doors open at 7 p.m. each night for live pre-show music, with performances beginning at 7:30 p.m. Admission for the general public is $10 per show.

William Shakespeare's classic Taming of the Shrew tells of a battle that begins when a gold digger named Petruchio unites himself in marriage to Katherine, a "shrew" who will not bend her will for any man. Shakespeare wages a comedic clash of wit, character, and gender, bringing an unexpected romance out of hilarious chaos.

For Sense and Sensibility, ASC will perform a new adaptation of the Jane Austen novel by Emma Whipday. This story revolves around two sisters: Elinor Dashwood, the sensible older sister, and Marianne Dashwood, her flighty younger sister. When the sisters lose both their social standing and the men they love, their search for identity requires the power of their minds and hearts.
