Description

Trump’s populist slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ appeals to disillusioned war veteran Jimmy in rustbelt Michigan but his new-found politics threaten to tear his family apart – until an unexpected visit leads to a profound emotional reconciliation. Original, humorous, intensely moving storytelling, redemptive and hopeful, about overcoming trauma, and having to face it to overcome it. From award-winning actor-playwright Richard Vergette. ‘Multi-layered and masterful’ (HackneyCitizen.co.uk). ‘An excellent storyteller’ (BritishTheatreGuide.info). ‘Compelling, heart-wrenching… gripping piece of new theatre writing that should be experienced by all generations’ (FringeReview.co.uk). ‘Extraordinary tour-de-force… uplifting and devastating in equal measure’ (TheReviewsHub.com).
