Ivanka: A Medea for Right Now
Posted on October 21, 2016
Actor’s Express presents a reading of Joshua Harmon’s comedy Ivanka: A Medea for Right Now for a one-night special engagement on October 30, 2016 at 7 PM. Directed by A. Julian Verner, this performance is free and open to the public.
As her blustering father gets closer to the White House, Ivanka has finally had it with his terrifying rhetoric. When she publicly disavows him, he throws her into exile, forcing her to take drastic measures. In this savage satire, playwright Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews) hilariously confronts the nature of loyalty and the barbarism of American politics.
