Jen may have lost her election for student council president, but with a little help from Julius Caesar, she can always overthrow the school government instead. Any time an ambitious, angry potential despot utters the phrase "democracy sucks," Caesar appears to lead them down the path to ultimate power. But as her coup escalates from choosing an appropriately glorious title and signature look to naming scapegoats and seizing the media, Jen must ask herself just how far she's willing to go. A wickedly smart comedy that explores how autocrats, past and present, consolidate power and exploit our fears.
