Actress Kristy Swanson, best known for starring in the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has reported receiving death threats for daring to take a role in a play deemed too pro-Trump by liberals.
Swanson is set to star with co-star Dean Cain in a play entitled, “FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers,” on June 13 at The Studio Theater in Washington, D.C.
The play is not a dramatized treatment of the lives of FBI radicals Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. It will simply consist of the two actors reading the texts and emails the twocrooked cops sent to each other.
But as soon as Swanson was cast in the role of Lisa Page, the attacks began.
Swanson said that someone on Twitter posted a threat saying, “Have the Capitol steps open, lock the doors, set the theater on fire.” Swanson added that the message not only threatened the two actors, but also the production team, and the audience.
“I think it’s disgusting that someone would make a threat like this,” Swanson told BizPacReview.
The producer recntly explained the show.
“It is a 100 percent verbatim script constructed out of the secret texts from Peter Strzok and Lisa Page (aka the FBI Lovebirds) and I have included their closed-door testimony to the congressional committee that was investigating them,” producer Phelim McAleer has said about the upcoming show. “It’s an amazing script of Page and Strzok texting like juvenile lovers in between vile anti-Trump texts and them planning to investigate him as an ‘insurance policy’ in case he gets elected. It’s clear when you see and hear the texts and their lame defenses when questioned about them that they were determined to stop the Trump presidency by any means necessary.”
The messages exchanged between Strzok and Page called Trump a “loathsome human being,” an “idiot” and a “disaster.” At one point Strzok texted, “He’s never going to become president, right?” Page answered saying, “No, no, he won’t. We’ll stop it.” And these two biased agents were tasked with investigating the fake “Russia collusion” case.
The production is currently working to raise the $95,000 needed to stage the play and a crowdfunding page was launched to that end.
The page states: “We are going to show the mainstream media and Hollywood that they can no longer push the Russia collusion hoax and force them to acknowledge how the Deep State, DC Swamp tried to destroy the Trump candidacy and presidency.”
The producers of the show are conservative activists and Irish filmmakers Phelim McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney. They have done this sort of production before, most notably a similar verbatim production covering the riots in Ferguson, Missouri.
McAleer and McElhinney were also producers of Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer (2018), Not Evil Just Wrong (2009), and FrackNation (2013).
