“Something Out of Nothing.” By Susanna Grant. Perf. Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell, Matthew Fox, and Lacey Chabert. Dir. Richard Pearce. Party of Five. Season 1, episode 9. FOX. 7 November 1994. DVD. Sony, 2008.
There is a bit of Shakespeare in a Party of Five episode. Because I was still grading some multiple-choice exams at the end of the non-Shakespearean “Kiss me, Kate,” I let it run on to the next episode.
It turns out that the character who broke up with his girlfriend is on the rebound, and he gets set up with the character in the image above.
She will be playing Kate in her high school’s production of The Taming of the Shrew!
But that’s it. She vanished into the night, and I got back to the exams.
