About

The REALITY of Trump is a look at the impact Trump has had on the lives of 6 women. They tell their own stories. The purpose of the play is to create more awareness of 2 important, under-reported, true stories of 2 very different women who have  both suffered painful injustices relating to Trump. 

Reality Winner is a US Air Force veteran and  whistleblower who smuggled a document, out of the NSA contractor facility where she was employed, to inform us all of the Russian attack on our election. She feared the important information was being covered up.  Ironically the Trump administration unjustifiably charged her with espionage!  

According to sworn affidavits, Katie was brutally raped by rich powerful men when she was 13, along with a 12 year old girl named Maria, who disappeared. She had an eyewitness, they both gave sworn statements, which apparently just didn't matter much. The case against Trump and Epstein ended out of fear, due to many threats. This shouldn't happen, not in the USA!   We need more consistent laws concerning sexual assault and to eliminate the statue of limitations! Threats against a plaintiff should be considered a crime too. So I wrote a play, to bring awareness of these very important not very well know, horrible cases of injustice. 

 I have assembled 2 full cast, 1 in the WDC area, and another in the Raleigh, area. We are ready to move forward, but theatre cost money. We also want to have these productions be non-profit, to raise money for related charities. So if we raise some money towards production costs, there will be more for the worthwhile causes.

Risks and challenges

Theatre production, I am learning takes more than creativity and hope. It takes money, printing scripts, renting a space, publicity and much more. I’m learning, I can’t expect some struggling theatre company to just come and rescue my project. I have to bring some resources for even a non- profit, well meaning project to move forward. We had a wonderful 1st reading and all who participated and attended agree the play is ready for the next big leap!
We have a full cast ready to go in WDC. We have a wonderful potential venue.
We also have a Raleigh cast and potential theater company ready to take the project on. Of course they are likely as broke as I am:)
We have some plans for a staged reading, at a human rights and justice related conference, and then hope to have a full production ready in early 2019. The sooner the better of course!
