What kind of person tries to sell their vote? That’s the question that leads Robbi down the rabbit hole when Brexit doesn’t turn out at all as she expected. Why do some people vote and others don’t? How can a referendum be such a surprise? How do you continue to get along with your neighbors when half of them must be wrong?
The Majority by Rob Drummond is a smart and funny reflection on the imperatives and imperfections of democracy. The principles sound great, but they’re so messy in practice! What does it mean to be an informed and involved electorate? Why is the process so divisive? Which side is right? This one-person show doesn’t choose sides. In fact, audience members don’t just make up their own minds, they directly impact the story by practicing their civic duty – they vote!
