Dramatic Comedy / Characters: 4m, 3f / Interior Set Bekah Brunstetter makes her Off Broadway debut in September 2009 at the Atlantic Theatre Company! Ron is back from his third and final tour in Iraq, and his wife Sara is excited to restart their life together in their new home. When a young marine visits the family, life is turned upside down. Sara's sister is swept off her feet; her daughter Lacey trades her dresses for combat boots, and Ron gets hungry for real military action. In this disarmingly funny and candid drama, Bekah Brunstetter raises challenging questions about what it means when the military is woven into the fabric of a family, and service is far more than just a job. "The young scribe's talent and potential are obvious in this Southern-basted dramatic comedy about the war mystique as it plays out on the American home front..." - Variety "...Poignancy and terrific humor in both the writing and performances..." - Theatremania.com "If there's anything that stands out about Oohrah! at the Atlantic Theater Company's Stage II, it's the off-Broadway introduction of playwright Bekah Brunstetter, whose play is a fascinating, original take on something we've come to see rather often nowadays: the war play. ..Let's hope we hear her voice uptown again real soon." - nytheatre.com "The play skillfully depicts how the demands of military service affect an individual family and society as a whole. Brunstetter's people are real and funny. She never condescends to them or treats them as symbols to put a point across...A big hurrah for Oohrah! - Back Stage "There have been plenty of plays about the Iraq War on New York stages in the past several years but few that deal as directly with the viewpoints of military families as Oohrah!...Bekah Brunstetter makes an impressively smart debut (no one could argue that she doesn't have dramatic chops)" - MusicOMH
