Description

Last year's 'chaotically enjoyable' (Spectator) sell-out hit Shakespeare adaptation returns. Actor and impersonator Carl David – aka David Carl – is locked up for performing his hilarious Trump-inspired version of Shakespeare's King Lear. Forced to play for an audience of one – the US President himself – Carl's life depends on making the bard great again and giving the performance of a lifetime without offending the audience. 'A surreal, grotesque send-up of The Donald by brilliant American impressionist David Carl' (Daily Mail). 'It's quite damning' (New York Times). Time Out NY Critics Pick!
