Aspie Works kicks off its 2017 campaign with a one-night-only charity reading of The Taming!

Lauren Gunderson (Exit, Pursued by a Bear) writes this all-female political satire loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew – to be performed at the MuCCC on Thursday, January 19 at 7:30pm.

Katherine is a Miss America pageant contestant whose political ambitions match her big spirit. Patricia is an uptight conservative senator’s aide trying to help her boss pass legislation. Bianca is a liberal blogger who has dirt on the senator and is ready to bring him – and Patricia – down. Then there’s also a side trip into American history that may leave them in a place where America’s political status quo can be challenged and perhaps destroyed…

Jacqueline Moe directs this charity reading, after helming Aspie Works’ 2016 hit Ghost Light; the cast is TBA.

Tickets will be $5 each, with proceeds benefitting the Women’s Foundation of Genesee Valley, who are dedicated to helping women become financially self-sufficient through seven Western New York counties.
