"Space Girl" by Mora V. Harris

Arugula is your typical teenage girl trying to fit in at a new school. But she doesn't just feel like an alien...she is one. Toss roller derby, budding sexuality and salad into the mix and saving the human race has never been more complicated. This brand new comedy explores what it means to be human from the perspective of one who is not.

Staged Reading: The Taming--A New Political Comedy

Staged Reading: The Taming--A New Political Comedy

ATLANTA, GA – Playwright Lauren Gunderson said that any theatre company, group, or person who wants to do a reading of The Taming – A New Political Comedy (The Tamingon Inauguration Day 2017 can do so for FREE – so The Weird Sisters Theatre Project, Synchronicity Theatre, and 7 Stages have “elected” to take her up on her offer!

If you aren’t marching on Washington, or making a quick escape to Canada, join us on Friday, January 20 at 7:00pm at 7 Stages Theatre to see a FREE staged reading of Gunderson’s modern, political satire that “takes the sass, sex and banter of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew and tags in American politics.” $10 suggested donation to go to the ACLU. Cash preferred at the door.

A crackling modern political farce, The Taming takes on America’s overheated political rhetoric and upends historical truths about our founding fathers. When a conservative senatorial aid, a liberal political activist, and a very sparkly beauty queen find themselves locked in a hotel room, the political passions of these slightly insane women prove they might just be revolutionary geniuses. Inside the heightened, cheerfully absurd world of The Taming, Gunderson spanks America’s sound bite politics with the switch of actual history, and proves Shakespeare’s point that true debate is hot.

The Taming is directed by Weird Sister’s Kate Donadio MacQueen and stars Atlanta-based actors Rachel Frawley as Bianca, Caroline Arapoglou as Katherine, Tiffany Morgan as Patricia, and Chelcy Cutwright as Voices.

Tweetering, pandashrews, and undying giddiness for James Madison -- what else could you expect to find at a Miss America pageant? In this hilarious, raucous, all-female "power-play," inspired by Shakespeare's Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator's aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding- heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate ether trip. Here's lookin' at you, America.
