A Word In Edgewise: "ELECTION" by Tom Perrotta — Part 1

Date 2 August 2013

A special 90-min. Edgewise to kick off this 4-part cringey laughfest: “ELECTION” by Tom Perrotta… Participants include candidates Grace Fae (Tracy Flick); Casey Burke (Paul Warren); Nadia White (Tammy Warren) as well as unindicted co-conspirators Julia Boorinakis-Harper (Lisa Flanagan); Brandon Johnson (Jack Dexter); Leia Farrell (Sherry Dexter); and Vice Principal Walt Hendricks (John Bivens). Oh – and T. E. Wolfe as “Mr. M” who really shoulda known better than to get involved is all I’m saying. More folks to be added as the weeks ensue…

Tracy Flick wants to be President of Winwood High. She’s one of those ambitious girls who finds time to do it all: edit the yearbook, star in the musical, sleep with her English teacher. But another teacher, staunch idealist Jim McAllister (aka “Mr. M.”), thinks the students deserve better. So he persuades Paul Warren—a well-liked, good-hearted jock—to throw in his hat. But that puts Paul’s sister, Tammy, in a snit. So she runs, too, on an apathy platform—before starting a real campaign…to get herself kicked out of school.
