Theatre503 presents…

Top Trumps

19-21 Jan

7:45pm, 3pm Saturday Matinee



A festival of plays about Donald Trump’s first 100 days in the White House

[image]As we face a seismic shift in world politics, Theatre503 presents a festival of plays, creative responses and debate. In the week of President Trump’s inauguration a team of 503 artists offer plays, proposals and premonitions to explore the road that has led to this point and the directions we might take from here.

Each show will feature all 12 short plays, followed immediately by panel discussions designed to provoke thought and action, featuring leading journalists, campaigners, politicians, economists and U.S. theatre-makers. On 19th January we ask “Could Trump be a good thing?” On the 20th, “What can I do now?” as activists discuss practical ways to move forward. After the matinee on the 21st we take on political correctness and discuss the shy locker room Trump supporters, and finally after the evening show on 21st we ask “Is the Media to blame?”
