It’s 3 am on election night. Campaign headquarters is outfitted for a huge celebIt’s 3 am on election night. Campaign headquarters is outfitted for a huge celebration, but the room is dead quiet. Laura Smith, the Republican incumbent and supposed favorite, lost her Senate race in a landslide. Suddenly without friends, and drunk as a skunk, Laura is thinking of cashing it all in…that is, until one of her loyal and spunky interns, Jesse, rescues her from the brink of disaster and wrestles her, quite literally, back to political life. With the uninvited ghost of FDR, THE WAR PARTY is a modern political parable about our broken two-party system.
