LORCA EATS BULLETS Synopsis
A mad-cap new play juxtaposing the trials of war through the lens of the young adults conscripted to fight the Battle of Stalingrad and shades of the Vietnam War. The play deals with antiwar themes and focuses on a team of Russian female snipers as they journey through battles with the Wehrmacht, Giant Hitler and Stalin monsters, and Baby Messerschmitts.
