Schein and Steinzor have freely adapted Ubu Roi as an allegory for the ascendance of he who shall not be named. The play chronicles his outrageous rise and fall: starting with his ascension to the “ Potty of POTUS,” and chronicling his trumpultuous reign, the Turd Rebellion, the invasion of Trumperica by Mexico, Canada, Monaco, and Djibouti, his eventual deposition, his pursuit and capture by the forces of the FLOTUS and his eventual escape to the farthest wilds of Poll Land.
The part of PAPA TRUMPUBOO will be multiple cast. The TURD CHORUS will accentuate the flatulence of PAPA TRUMBUBOO by playing Whoopi Cushions, as well as doubling as the WALL OF PUNDITS, VOICE of POLL-LAND, the DEBRAINING MACHINE and various mobs, armies and popular fascist and democratic movements. Other principals include, INVANKAPIECEOFASSUBOO, THE PONCE OF PENCE (BOSS OF WOMB), BARAKAKAPOTUS, THE FLOTUS, BAD VLAD, HILAROVA QUALIFIED, BERNOCIALIST, UNCLE BEN, JEFF SECESSION, STEVEVIL, KKKELLY ANN, SCI DENY, and other characters both heroic and despicable.
