From the team behind the downtown hit David Carl's Celebrity One-Man Hamlet (formerly titled Gary Busey's One-Man Hamlet) comes a new Shakespeare adaptation: Trump Lear.
Actor and impersonator, Carl David, is being held without bail for performing his Trump-inspired version of Shakespeare's King Lear. Carl David is forced to perform his King Lear to an unseen online audience of one, as the President restlessly watches remotely from a live and public feed. The stakes are high: if Trump likes Carl and his show, Carl lives. If not, Carl dies. But how can Carl get through a show where he has created a Lear based on Trump himself without offending the audience?
