“Tamer of Hoses,” written by William Mastrosimone, examines the intersecting themes of youth violence, education and the realization of one’s own potential through the eyes of Hector (Chris Vizurraga), Ty (Steve Stinson) and Georgiane (Meghan Powe). Hector, a troubled youth whose talent for rap rivals his penchant for criminal behavior, is befriended by Ty, a former teacher who takes Hector under his wing. He attempts to inspire and educate him through their examination of Homer’s “The Iliad”, and despite Georgiane’s mistrust, Ty forges a bond with him that has the power to redeem or destroy them both.
