Description

Theatre Seven presents the Chicago premiere of Josh Tobiessen’s rip-roaring political satire.

The race for mayor is coming down to the wire, and Adam’s activist girlfriend, Brenda, won’t stop reminding him to vote. When Brenda heads out for one last day on the stump, Adam gets a visit from his deadbeat sister, her anarchist boyfriend and the opposing mayoral candidate himself. Between a kidnapping conspiracy, a sack of Molotov cocktails, a sex-for-votes exchange and one severely stoned ecoterrorist, will Adam ever make it to the voting booth?

Directed by Brant Russell
