A MAYOR FOR DIXIE – ONE ACT COMEDY ABOUT RUNNING FOR MAYOR
Mr Pope will do just about anything to become Mayor of Dixie. And why not? He’s always had plenty of money, so a large expensive campaign will do the trick. He’s also always gotten exactly what he wants from life and this time, it’s his opponent’s wife, who is feeding him covert information, as well as, um…other things. The thing is, although he has a sixty percent majority, he can’t help being just a teeny bit concerned that his opponent, Mr Crance may just beat him, by being just the bleeding hearted sucker that the public loves in this one act comedy about running for mayor.
He has just a bit of scandal about the very same Mr Crance, which just might tip the odds in his favour…
