Free Reading of The Taming

Friday January 20 at noon

Please join us at noon on Friday, January 20 in the Banner Room at the Nashville Public Library Main Branch for a free reading of The Taming, by Lauren Gunderson. It's a laugh-a-minute mash up of beauty pageants, contemporary partisan politics, and the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Perfect for Inauguration Day!
TWTP produced The Taming in 2015, and we're thrilled to be able to be partners with the Nashville library in offering this free reading.Two of our original cast members, Colette Divine (Patricia) and Brooke Gronemeyer (Catherine), will reprise their roles for the reading. They'll be joined by Leah Fincher (who stage managed our 2015 production) as Bianca. Actor, playwright and TWTP alum Becky Wahlstrom will read the stage directions.
Ours is one of nearly 50 readings taking place nationwide on Inauguration Day, thanks to the generosity of the playwright, Lauren Gunderson, who is allowing us all to present The Taming royalty-free!
