A ONE ACT PLAY
This play takes a satirical look at some of the tactics employed, the issues faced and the struggle of the candidates during an election campaign. The two candidates (Morgan and Denise) meet each other, some of their constituents and a media representative, in a suburban park. There is a tussle to gain the upper hand – however both candidates have their own difficulties in managing the issues and getting their point across. The media representative (Dawn) is of little assistance in reflecting a balanced view and is preoccupied with her own personal issues.
Ultimately the audience become the voters and decide who wins the seat.
NOTE: While this is a fictional account, this play has in part, been inspired by, and loosely based on actual events.
