What is the lowdown on Donald Trump? Who are the people and what are the forces that shaped him? Playwright Mike Daisey explains our 45th president in this edgy, funny, and disturbing one-man show, The Trump Card. The performance is not a comedy impersonation, rather a raw and intriguing story that gets to the roots of Donald Trump’s personality and motivations. Performed throughout the country, this is the first time the show will be staged in Hawaii. John Sucke, long-time actor and Waimea resident, has adapted the script and performs the show. “I learned more about why Trump acts the way he does from this play than from all the news stories I’ve read and watched. That’s why I wanted to bring the show here,” says Sucke. Get ready for 90 minutes of unforgettable political theater.

Based on the 1985 novel My Love, My Love, or The Peasant Girl, by Rosa Guy, it is set in the French Antilles. The show, with its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, uses elements from Romeo and Juliet as well as The Little Mermaid to enchant the denizens of a tropical island. Singing gods, dancing story-tellers, and an array of colorful villagers will all be played by Kona youngsters age 18 and under.
