With her father nearing the White House and his hateful rhetoric only getting more egregious, dutiful daughter Ivanka has had enough: She’s withdrawn support from her father’s campaign. In retaliation, her father vows to evict her—from her luxury apartment and the country itself. Now Ivanka faces disgrace in her father’s world: Can she live in exile? Where does her loyalty lie—to family or country? And what lengths will she go to to change the story of her family’s name?

About Theatrical Selections

In the weeks leading up to the nation’s presidential election, Arena Stage, the Kennedy Center, Shakespeare Theatre Company, Signature Theatre, and Studio Theatre collaborate to bring politics and drama to the stage. Each theatre will host a reading of a play they feel reflects the country’s current political and social environment, and will consider political moments from burgeoning fascism in the 1930s to partisan horse-trading in modern America.
