Avoid D'Augustino's pizza. It is right around the corner but service was terrible. After waiting 50 minutes for our food, it had not arrived and the server was clueless. We left without eating but did make it to the play on time.

This play is hilarious. The comic and physical timing was terrific. You will not be disappointed. The theater is easy to get to and because of its small size, there isn't a bad seat in the house.

Funny, very well acted, not exactly deep commentary on politics, but an enjoyable evening nonetheless

More Information


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
