Josh Tobiessen's intermittently amusing one-act concerns two undecided voters and their respective lovers, a zealous campaign volunteer, and a pot-smoking ecoterrorist. Add to the mix an oily mayoral candidate who will do anything--anything--to win the support of the undecideds, and you've got the potential for sharp political satire. But Tobiessen's script is at once too far-fetched for effective satire and not zany enough for good farce. Though it has its funny moments, Theatre Seven of Chicago's production fails to generate the mad pace needed to support the action's escalating absurdity. (AW)
