What is it?
cough // drop theatre presents the Force of Trump by Sami Ibrahim, at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre in London.
It’s 2017. Donald Trump is President. And he’s just been banned from the United Kingdom.
Stuck on Air Force One, Trump is trying to make his first state visit to the UK. All the while, allegations are flung at him. The USA and UK have gone to war in Syria, and Trump is accused of authorising American troops to torture Muslim British soldiers. As tensions mount, a ban on the President is enforced and Donald J Trump struggles to negotiate his way into the country.
With all the bombast of the man himself – and one fetching blonde wig – Force of Trump is a timely, and very bitter farce about a very scary man. A theatrical whistle-stop tour through the 21st century’s politics of populism and hate.
After five-star runs at The Space Arts Centre and the Camden Fringe, Force of Trump now lands at the Jack Studio, just in time for the Presidential Election.
cough // drop is a brand new theatre company, looking for ways to smash together bloody drama and riotous farce. cough // drop aims to create multicoloured, riotous, and manic theatre.
