RANDOM TAKES OFF (political action screenplay)
What if we selected representatives the way the first democracy did? The way we choose juries?
In this screenplay one of the five hundred chosen for the first Citizen Legislature is a farm boy, coming off of a drug addiction. The other is a suburban middle-aged woman who’d really rather be gardening.
They will face bribery attempts. A smear campaign. High-tech shenanigans. Can they be an effective Citizen Legislature in the face of all of that?
I wrote this screenplay because I believe in democracy. And I like to laugh my way through challenge and conflict.
