Thanks to an idiotic childhood promise, Presidential candidate Andrew Wright is engaged to Bertha Desiree Sprock a lady as lovely as her name. His unscrupulous campaign manager convinces Bertha she is the target of assassins and he cajoles Veronica Parkhurst, an absolute doll, to stand in for Bertha at the convention. Veronica so captivates the delegates that they want her as Andrew's running mate and Andrew and Veronica fall in love. Will Bertha spill the beans and destroy Andrew's career if he doesn't marry her? What is the codeword that causes the Secret Service to blast anyone who leaves the hotel suite? Why would the Queen of England audition for the Dallas cheerleaders? Where do you find a hotel chef who can provide hemlock? This is one of the most hyperactive political satires ever to romp across a stage.
