About this show

War Sucks. Flipping Burgers Sucks Harder. It's just another morning at a 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. Presented by Page 73 and The Play Company "SCARY and THRILLING! CRITIC'S PICK!" -- Backstage "PAGE 73 AND PLAY COMPANY DO WELL BY ELIZA CLARK with this well-mounted production!" -- Variety "A SUSPENSEFUL TALE of an America in the new future! Clark has an ear for realistic dialogue and UNSPOOLS HER SOLILOQUIES WITH LOVELY SKILL" -- Associated Press "The play is set in New Jersey, but there are no Jersey Shore-style antics here; it's more like the Orson Welles and Steven Spielberg versions of War of the Worlds!" -- The New York Times "The emotional, visceral impact of the piece as it builds--and builds, and just never stops building, through Trip Cullman's highly kinetic staging--is INCREDIBLY POWERFUL ... This beautifully constructed production, thought out and executed with precision in all its scenic and staging elements is AN EXCITING TESTAMENT TO THE WAY NEW PLAYS SHOULD BE REALIZED!" -- NYTHEATRE.COM "Anytime a new playwright comes along with a knack for creating dramatic situations and ratcheting up tension to nerve-shredding levels, it's CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION -- ANYONE WHO CAN GRIP AN AUDIENCE AS CLARK DOES HERE IS A KEEPER!" -- Lighting & Sound America
