"...David Thomas is a powerhouse. I initially brushed off his character Tom as some comedic homeless character, but seeing Zuccotti Park is worth it just to hear his song in the first act. It will blow you away." Katy Koop, Triangle Arts and Entertainment

After eight years of war, Sergeant Cooper visits his childhood sweetheart Kate in New York City. They meet in the heart of the financial district, Zuccotti Park, which unbeknownst to them is now ground zero for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

With a cast as diverse as the movement is personifies, Zuccotti Park introduces us to students without jobs, homeless veterans, first time home buyers facing foreclosure, and those profiting from the system itself.

Told with live music, a set that "occupies" the room, and a night of dinner theater like you've never experienced before.
