The true story of an unassuming teacher who jettisons a cushy job to join the frontline of the Occupy movement, to Communications Director for Jill Stein's well-meaning but flawed 2016 US Presidential campaign. A provocative, intelligent, often hilarious account of how America lost its way and woke up in Trumplandia! Dennis Trainor Jr takes a pickaxe to the pillars supporting the toxic myth of American exceptionalism. A world première directed by Broadway veteran, David Esbjornson (Angels in America, world première in 1991). For American Autumn: 'Calm and smart, offsetting its stridency with humour' (New York Times).
