It’s Election Day, and Adam knows his over-zealous girlfriend will never forgive him if he fails to vote. But when his sex starved sister, an eco-terrorist, and a mayoral candidate willing to do anything for a vote all show up, Adam finds that making that quick trip to the polls might be harder than he thought. Election Day is a hilarious dark comedy about the price of political (and personal) campaigns.
"An outrageous comedy...at double-espresso speed." - The New York Times
"Ridiculously entertaining...cute and cutting." - Variety
"Laugh-out-loud." - Back Stage
"Delightfully farcical...Tobiessen takes a simple premise and spins it out into a hilarious sequence of events. His dialogue is lean and playful, and includes some terrific lines." - TheaterMania.com
Election Day had it's world premiere at Second Stage Theatre's Uptown Series in New York City in July 2007.
