An absurd, dystopian satire. Lottery is a comedy full of awkward moments, illicit deals and panic ridden decisions. Politics has changed, the voting system as we know it has been replaced by a new, fairer system. The PM is chosen at random every 5 years, whether qualified for the job or not. The public can't be trusted with a vote anymore. Democracy is clearly a flawed system. Running the country is now a random member of the public who, after being chosen, tries to toe the line between being the "down-to-earth-everyman-who-looks-out-for-the-people" to "the-newest-addition-to-a-club-who-despite-swearing-they've-been-randomly-selected-have-a-striking-resemblance-to-the-old-elected-cabinet."
