Zuccotti Park, a musical about economics in America, is set at its namesake location, Zuccotti Park, in New York City during the Occupy protests of late 2011. It was here that a broad cross section of Americans, whose lives were changed by the economic collapse, met to make their voices heard. In the play, two soldiers, Cooper and Washington, stumble upon the protest while on leave from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Cooper, a farm boy from Iowa, gets caught up in a scuffle between the protesters and the police when he tries to help a young woman, Kate, who has been pepper sprayed. Cooper ends up in jail with the protesters. While there, Cooper finds he is attracted to Kate, despite the fact that they disagree on almost everything. After Cooper, Kate and the protesters are bailed out; Cooper accepts Kate’s invitation to help him find his way back to Zuccotti Park to meet up with his friend, Washington. Throughout the play, we learn the back-stories of the protesters as well as the points of view of people who profit from the system. Each story and point of view contributes to our understanding of the complex web that is the economic system in America. The main story of Cooper and the protesters comes to a head when the police raid the Occupy camp at Zuccotti Park and dismantle it. All reserved seats $10.00.
