Now that Halloween is over we can count down to something truly scary. On Nov 7th, the Maryland Ensemble Theatre will fast forward four years into the Trump Presidency with Great Again!
A while back we wrote that our Editor-In-Chief wrote a play… A post-apocalyptic Our Town for the Trump presidency. A show titled Great Again. Here’s the latest update!
Alright folks, here’s the big update about GREAT AGAIN!
Do you want to see what the world could look like four years into a Trump presidency? Do you want to see satire that goes beyond the orange hue of Trump’s skin and a bad toupee? Well you’ve got ONE CHANCE (before the election).
On Monday Nov 7th (election eve) we’ll be hosting a staged reading of Great Again at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre at 8pm! We’ve got a hell of cast that you won’t want to miss:
Donald Trump: Jack Evans
Ben Carson: Ray Hatch
Ted Cruz: Thom Huenger
Vladimir Putin: Reiner Prochaska
Paul Manafort: Sonny Etzler
Kellyanne Conway: Laura Stark
Ivanka Trump: IO Duarte
Don’t miss your chance to see what it really means to make America great again!
Two months ago The Annual went on a three week hiatus. During this time we launched our Patreon account and I, Kevin Cole, wrote a play called Great Again.
Great Again takes a satiric look Trump’s dystopian future, and could more specifically be referred to as Our Town for the Trump Administration. The story starts four years into his presidency as we are guided by our narrator, Ben Carson, through the world of Trump. The story also features the likes of Ted Cruz, Vladimir Putin and of course, Ivanka.
I’ll be directing the show as a METx production for Maryland Ensemble Theatre this fall with show dates on Nov 6 & 7th (election eve) and Nov 11 & 12. Mark your calendars.
