The Weird Sis­ters Theatre Project in As­so­ci­a­tion with Syn­chronic­ity Theatre and 7 Stages presents a staged read­ing of “The Tam­ing – A New Po­lit­i­cal Comedy,” by Lauren Gun­der­son to­day. 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 sound­bite pol­i­tics with the switch of ac­tual his­tory, and proves Shake­speare’s point that true de­bate is hot. 7 p.m., free but a $10 do­na­tion is sug­gested, 7 Stages, www.7stages.org ART Sta­tion presents the play “Lewis Griz­zard In His Own Words,” at 8 p.m. tonight run­ning through Jan. 22, www.art­sta­tion.org
