Margaret doesn't know who she is or what she's aiming for. Forced to work two jobs to pay down her debt, she wades through office triviality at The Services Corporation by day and by night she works the drive-thru of The Burg, a 24/7 fast food restaurant. But through co-workers and friends, Margaret's existential muddle begins to resolve as connections are found in the most unsuspecting of places. Funny, satirical, and surprising, Origin Story is an offbeat look at the quarter-life crisis and how to connect in an unconnected world.

“Nathan Alan Davis is a genuine poet of theatre... from vaulted diction to teen slang. His verve, emotional intelligence, and ambition are outstanding.” - Whiting Award Committee
