King Cowboy Rufus Rules the Universe
In Richard Foreman’s most overtly political play, Rufus is and is not the President of the United States and an Imitation Donald Trump. He is a cowboy who dreams of being king of the universe. Only, in the first instance, he isn’t really a cowboy, he’s a foppish English gentleman who dreams of being ‘a real American cowboy’. This Imitation King Cowboy Donald Trump is a wild bull raging inside the world's china shop -- attacked by cocooned babies, whores and worldly wise grizzly bears. Turning away from sexual exploitation, he is transformed by the alchemy of inevitable private catastrophe.
