a political fable about the world's first cloned woman to run for president written and performed by Jackie Ruggiero Jacobson with Gerre Garrett as Susan B. Anthony • directed by Neill Hartley Bred in a Petri dish...Raised in a walk in closet by the ghost of Susan B. Anthony...Genetically engineered to possess intelligence, ambition, lethal sex appeal and the skin of a rhino, Adamaris, the world's first cloned woman is making history. She's running for president in the year 2012. Charlotte, a young law student from Illinois, trails her campaign. Longing to be a part of Adamaris' historic victory she puts her own life on hold and launches a bohemian bus tour in support of her candidate. She's sure that Adamaris, a crossbreed of pant suit power and Victoria Secret's feminine mystique, is just the recipe for an implosion of the land's highest glass ceiling. But when Charlotte takes her case to the bus stops of America, she finds herself neck deep in centuries' old mud. Change is sinking, along with her heroine's celebrity status. It'll take superhuman strength to save them both for posterity.
