When Liz lands her dream role on Broadway, she’s on the first flight to JFK, NYC, USA. She envisions picnics in Central Park, cocktails with DiCaprio and dusk-lit trips to the deworming centre with Cher. Unfortunately Liz neglected to read her contract’s small print – clown...McDonald’s...Guantanamo...

Determined to find the comedy in her own tragic life, Liz sets up the Camp’s first independent-fast-food-restaurant-based-theatre-company with her imaginary friend – Arnie Grape from 1993’s ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?’

But when messages from the base’s longest-serving detainee begin to appear on burger boxes and tray sheets, in ketchup and milkshake, Liz finds her true motivation – to stage a musical powerful enough to blow the Bay’s doors off.
