Dumped? – Hilarious American Political Satire (Mixed media Play)

$5.50

Donald J. Dump, 45th President of the United States, is just beginning his “revenge” tour – a tour which, after its conclusion, will make America great again (again). When God (voiced by
Kathleen Turner) catches wind of this development, Abraham Lincoln is promptly sent back to Earth to monitor the tour and help God decide Donald’s ultimate fate. He takes the audience
through a video tour of Donald in his youth, scamming and cheating his way to his greedy desires, all while continuing to misrepresent fact as fiction to his supporters. On the final stop of the tour, Lincoln and God have seen enough. With one last discolorful exclamation, Dump clutches his chest and dies from a sudden heart attack in this American Political Satire.

DUMPED – HILAROUS AMERICAN POLTICAL SATIRE (MIXED MEDIA PLAY

Donald J. Dump, 45th President of the United States, is just beginning his “revenge” tour – a tour which, after its conclusion, will make America great again (again). When God (voiced by
Kathleen Turner) catches wind of this development, Abraham Lincoln is promptly sent back to Earth to monitor the tour and help God decide Donald’s ultimate fate. He takes the audience
through a video tour of Donald in his youth, scamming and cheating his way to his greedy desires, all while continuing to misrepresent fact as fiction to his supporters. On the final stop of the tour, Lincoln and God have seen enough. With one last discolorful exclamation, Dump clutches his chest and dies from a sudden heart attack in this American Political Satire.

Now in Purgatory, Mr. Lincoln has decided to give Donald one final chance to plead his case. He asks Mr. Dump to provide further clarification on some of the acts he did as President,
including his handling of the COVID pandemic, repealing Obamacare, and the construction of the border wall with Mexico. As comical as the responses are, God has seen enough and
strikes him down with a bolt of lightning, prompting Honest Abe to drag him through the gates of Hell.

Donald is able to communicate with his wife, Selania, via seance, but other than that, Hell proves to be a “toasty” end for his comeback tour. Abraham Lincoln’s ultimate conclusion is that there may only be one way to silence Dump permanently, and the two engage in a hilarious, W.W.F. style wrestling match. At the conclusion of the play, Lincoln pins Dump and wins the match, prompting Dump to call the match “rigged” and ask for a recount.
