Actors Repertory Theatre Luxembourg (Actors Rep) explores the meteoric rise of the brash and confrontational billionaire real estate developer to US President in their first autumn production.
“#WTF Happened? On the Phenomenon of Trump” is written and performed by Actors Rep Artistic Director Erik Abbott, who portrays several Trump supporters from a Coal Miner to a member of Congress. The characters, some of whose monologues are based on published interviews with real voters, present a variety of voices and viewpoints—alternately sympathetic, funny, perhaps frightening—and reveal a complex emotional and cultural tapestry examining the Trump effect in a compelling, theatrical way. The play was originally commissioned by Théâtre d’Esch and developed by Abbott and Théâtre d’Esch Director Charles Muller as a piece for the Ville de Esch-sur-Alzette’s ‘Nuit de la Culture’ in May, 2017
It has since been completely re-imagined and substantially revised, and with direction by Actors Rep Associate Artistic Director Christine Probst.
Catch “#WTF Happened? On the Phenomenon of Trump” from 20 – 23 September at 8pm and 24 September at 5pm.
