The Weird Sis­ters Theatre Project in as­so­ci­a­tion with Syn­chronic­ity Theatre 7 Stages presents a staged read­ing of “The Tam­ing – A New Po­lit­i­cal Com­edy,” by Lauren Gun­der­son. 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. 7 p.m., free but a $10 do­na­tion is sug­gested. 1105 Eu­clid Ave. N.E., At­lanta, GA 30307, www.7stages.org (Pub­lic­ity photo)
