Who are the people and what are the forces that shaped him? Playwright Mike Daisey explains our 45th president in the edgy, funny, and provocative one-man show, “The Trump Card” coming to the Big Island June 9-10 and 18. The performance is not a comedy impersonation, but a raw and intriguing story that gets to the roots of Trump’s personality and motivations. Performed throughout the country, this is the first time the show will be staged in Hawaii. John Sucke, the acclaimed Waimea actor, has adapted the script and performs the 90-minute show. “I learned more about why Trump acts the way he does from this play than from all the news stories I’ve read and watched. That’s why I wanted to bring the show here,” he said. Show times are 7 p.m. June 9 and 10 at Aloha Theatre and 2 p.m. June 18 at Honokaa People’s Theatre. Tickets for the Kainaliu performance are $10 online at www.apachawaii.org or at the door. Tickets for the Honokaa performance are also $10 and car be purchased via PayPal at mattbinder@ earthlink.net or at the door.
