The show begins when William Cooper (Ryan Neal Green) takes leave to visit childhood friend, Kate (Chelsea Rose Amoroso), in NYC after eight years at war. She is now beautiful, spirited, and passionate about the Occupy Movement. As his feelings for Kate grow, Cooper also connects with her protester friends, learns their stories and takes a good hard look at what it means to be an American. Book and lyrics by Catherine Hurd and music composed by Vatrena King.
