In these trying times, we need a president who will take command of the nation and lead us to victory and renew the spirit of patriotism … even if its just on stage!

The prolific Ego Actus Theatre Company presents a revival of Samuel Gallu’s one man exploration of the president that got us out of a war and not in one – Harry S. Truman.

In a younger life J. Dolan Byrnes worked as a Congressional Aide for a Member of Congress who stood up to the Reagan administration on a very important moral issue of the time and at great cost to her own career, a very Trumanesque thing to do. Coming from a working-class family with a keen interest in politics and an active involvement in local affairs, Byrnes says “It is the role of a lifetime to be able to portray this giant of a man.  Truman fought for my parents and perhaps yours as well, average Americans working in the factories of post-World War II.  He never forgot his farm roots, never lost his integrity, and always put “the folks” first; not the banks, not big business, not big unions, just “the folks”
