Mike Daisey takes on the reigning world heavyweight of self-mythologizing, the short-fingered vulgarian who captured a nation’s heart through bullying, charm, one-syllable explosions, and occasionally telling the brutal truth: Donald J. Trump. Daisey's play is performed by Ron Severdia and tells Trump’s story from his earliest days, tracking him as he makes himself into a new American archetype—the very first rich man famous exclusively for being rich. Instead of dismissing Trump as a simple con artist and huckster, he breaks down what makes Trump tick—and in doing so illuminates the state of our American Dream and how we’ve sold it out.
