It's election eve, November 2004, and the gods of heaven and earth have assembled in Florida to exact their revenge on George W. Bush for his theft of the 2000 election. Unless he atones for his sins and appeases the gods, they will continue to plague storm-weary Floridians with hurricanes. Their demand: that he sacrifice his twin daughters Jenna and Barbara outside the Florida Chapter of the League of Women Voters. Human sacrifice comes easy to George, but how will he convince the girls to stick their necks out for him? The Bushesteia is a no-holds-barred retelling of the Iphigenia plays by Euripides and The Oresteia by Aeschylus.
