When the town of Oldman Falls, New Hampshire votes to become a true democracy in 2016, the townsmen have to figure out what comes next. What they don’t realize is that the disenfranchised spinsters in town also have few things up their sleeves. The only question is how they’ll get into the town meeting if it’s only open to men. And to make matters worse, CNN will be covering the entire ordeal. The Special Election is inspired by Aristophanes, Thornton Wilder, and lesbian pulp fiction.
