The Taming 

When: Fri., Jan. 20, 7:30 p.m. 2017
Price: Free

Playwright Lauren Gunderson (I and You) wrote her farce The Taming to address her frustration with our obstructionist political patriarchy—and to laugh at the extremism exhibited on all sides. Then she made it available, royalty-free, for performances everywhere on Inauguration Day. In Bare Theatre's staged reading, Katherine's a tiara-topped beauty queen about to foist her plans to become Miss America—and give American constitutional government a makeover in the process—on an ultra-conservative senator's aide (think Kellyanne Conway) and a far-left blogger (think Rachel Maddow) whom she has trapped in a hotel room. Olivia Griego, Kaley Morrison, and Heather J. Strickland star. The show's free, but donations will be accepted for the ACLU of North Carolina. —Byron Woods
