Oct. 28-Nov. 13, 2016

Just in time for the Election Season comes a politically-minded comedy starring three of the funniest women in Eastern Iowa. What happens when a conservative senatorial aide, a liberal political activist and a newly-crowned Miss Georgia walk into a bar? The results are hilarious, but this play is no joke. Lauren Gunderson’s THE TAMING takes on America’s overheated political rhetoric, some surprising truths about our founding fathers, and the passions of three slightly insane women who just might be revolutionary geniuses.

Sean says: "I was thinking, 'What do I usually want during election season?' The answer: Wild, frivolous and smart comedy. For fans of KIMBERLY AKIMBO and END DAYS, this is one to vote for."
