The Compass Club mounted two Shakespeare productions at the College.  Macbeth was presented as a historical play using Shakespeare's text.  The Taming of the Shrew was updated to a modern setting of an Airport Lounge, with adjustments to the dialogue.  Petruchio adopted the style of a Biker and arrived by motorcycle, the Pedant in a vintage car.
