1ST SCENE SCREENPLAY READINGS • 6m 54s
This absurdist tongue-in-cheek musical comedy is about a sassy, single mom, suffragette, who must save her Colorado mining town from ruin by organizing the women and by joining forces with a colorblind, Victorian, chauvinistic doctor/inventor, who has unwittingly created a sex toy to cure female irritability. [The story is based on historical events in Colorado and Wyoming , which were the first states to grant women the right to vote in the 1893 and 1869.] Some of the country western musical numbers can be found on soundcloud.
