Ladies and gentlemen, in this new original comedy play, 1901 and the Woman's Suffragette Movement is looking for some traction on the whole getting women the right to vote thing... and what better way to get the public's attention than to host a spiritualism convention whose main attraction is Madam Touche', a French-ish medium who says she can talk to the dead. However, it just might be that Touche' is the least odd one at this carnival, full of scam artists and specious soothsayers, dubious orphans and arrogant socialites, serial killers and ex-Minnesotans, who are all trying to pull one over the other to get what they want, including those women getting the right to vote!

You'll have to see it to not believe a word of it!
