The Taming

The Taming

"...an often hilarious romp across the liberal-conservative divide...The Taming is an uproarious good time." - Albany Times Union

Inside the heightened, cheerfully absurd world of The Taming, Gunderson spanks America’s sound-bite politics, wrestles with a Shakespeare-inspired, playful and problematic battle of the sexes, and proves the point that true debate is hot. In a hilarious red-state versus blue-state comedy originally inspired by the banter in The Taming of the Shrew, America’s overheated political rhetoric is exposed through the passions of three slightly insane women who just might be revolutionary geniuses.
