ITHACA, N.Y. — The Civic Ensemble’s Godfrey L. Simmons Jr. will perform Mike Daisey’s edgy, funny, and provocative monologue “The Trump Card” at the Kitchen Theatre on the eve of the 2018 mid-term elections, November 5.

The one-night-only performance will benefit WRFI Community Radio.

“The Trump Card” is an exploration of the Trumps life story, influences, and his ascent to political power. The monologue analyzes the first reality television star cum president as a performer rather than as a politician. “The Trump Card” is neither comedic impersonation nor political diatribe and is critical of Democrats as well as Republicans.

Its an examination of our current political moment and a call for self-reflection among Americans of every stripe.

Simmons will be coming directly from New York where he is currently onstage in the hit off-broadway play “The Winning Side.” He and dramaturg Ron Russell have adapted the play which was originally written in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election.

Doors at 7pm, cash bar and live music; show at 8pm.

Tickets are available on brown paper tickets: The Trump Card with Godfrey L. Simmons Jr.
