Joshua Harmon, author of Significant Other and Bad Jews, has invited four theaters across the country to produce readings of his new play, IVANKA: A MEDEA FOR RIGHT NOW, including SpeakEasy Stage Company.

With her father nearing the White House and his hateful rhetoric only getting more egregious, dutiful daughter Ivanka Trump has had enough: She’s withdrawn support from her father’s campaign.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?

From the author of Bad Jews comes a modern-day Greek tragedy about loyalty, morality, and extreme times, with backup from Omarosa, Chris Christie, and the Sisterhood of the Park East Synagogue.
