‘Shrew,’ ‘Savages’ set for Yale Rep stagings

Bundy helms satire on poets Plath, Hughes

A “Taming of the Shrew” directed by Mark Lamos and plays by Kia Corthron and Amy Freed highlight the new season at Yale Repertory Theater, the first under new artistic director James Bundy. Plans for the 2002-2003 season were announced Thursday.

Bundy will helm Freed’s “The Psychic Life of Savages,” a satire inspired by the lives and writings of Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, Robert Loweel and Anne Sexton. Corthron’s “Breath, Boom” will be directed by Michael John Garces.

Also on the slate is “Medea/Macbeth/Cinderella,” conceived and directed by Bill Rauch and Tracy Young and adapted from texts by Euripides, William Shakespeare, and Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II.

“Fighting Words,” by Sunil Thomas Kuruvilla, will be directed by Liz Diamond. Play is about the family of a Welsh boxer.

There are no dates and venues set, and a sixth production will be announced shortly.
