“The play is set in an unappetizing fast-food joint in New Jersey, but there are no ‘Jersey Shore’-style antics here; something has gone far more horribly wrong in Ms. Clark’s version of the Garden State than in that MTV show.  It’s more like the Orson Welles (radio) and Steven Spielberg (film) versions of WAR OF THE WORLDS, which were set in New Jersey…” — The New York Times

“SUSPENSFUL TALE IN AN AMERICA OF THE NEAR FUTURE! — Clark has an ear for realistic dialogue and unspools her soliloquies with lovely skill.” – Associated Press

A NEW PLAY BY 2010 P73 Playwriting Fellow ELIZA CLARK

World Premiere

Nov. 9 – Dec. 4 (46 Walker Street – walkerspace)

In new playwright Eliza Clark’s suspenseful drama, it’s just another morning at the suburban burger joint where Ruckus, Marco and Emma smoke up, talk smack, and oh yeah work.  But when a bloodied stranger staggers in, the three teens are forced to choose sides in the grueling war advancing just outside the door.
