Just in time for the election, Stray Cat Theatre is excited to announce that their Founder / Artistic Director Ron May will be hitting their stage this fall for a special limited engagement of THE TRUMP CARD by Mike Daisey

Daisey wrote THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF STEVE JOBS which May performed at Actors Theatre a few years back and he is releasing a new monologue for public performance.

Dates and location to be announced but if you want guaranteed admission to this limited engagement of May performing Daisey's latest monologue - THE TRUMP CARD - take advantage of Stray Cat's Addict Admits. Your admission will be a fraction of the full price once those tickets go on sale.

As soon as Stray Cat has specifics on this production, we'll be sure to let you know.

THE TRUMP CARD - 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 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. Daisey weaves the Donald’s story alongside the evolution of the American oligarchy and the rise of dark money, a new ruling class empowered by a country trained to worship at a 24 carat solid gold super classy altar. Instead of dismissing Trump as a simple con artist and huckster, Daisey breaks down what makes Trump tick—and in doing so illuminates the state of our American Dream and how we’ve sold it out.
