When former Congressman Mark Stedman throws in the towel on his presidential campaign, his only choice is to return to his home state and decide how to spend the rest of his life ... until he meets Josiah Stoltzfus, an Amish farmer from Pennsylvania.
Stedman learns more from Josiah in a few hours than in his many years in office. He comes to the conclusion that someone like Josiah should be running the country. Not a career politician, but someone with a little old-fashioned common sense, someone who’s not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty. Someone like Josiah Stoltzfus.
Using his old campaign headquarters for a base, Mark Stedman determines to introduce a new candidate to America. Without Josiah’s consent or knowledge, he becomes a write-in candidate for the Presidency. Mark pledges to do everything in his power to make sure Josiah gets elected.
ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT
The author of the novel and play, Josiah for President, Martha Bolton was a staff writer for Bob Hope for more than 15 years and has written for other artists such as Mark Lowery, Jeff Allen and Phyllis Diller.
With over 40 books to her name, she's also written for Focus on the Family as well as parody lyrics of songs from Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman and Amy Grant.
Martha began her comedy-writing career as a church secretary. "I saw a lot of comedy in the church," Martha says with a laugh. "I used to perform a Friar's Club-type roast on the pastor, deacon, or any other church staff member who was celebrating a special occasion. I had to change churches a lot." And thus began Martha's writing career. She's been going strong ever since.
