In Love and Warcraft

Evie Malone, a college senior and top ranked World of Warcraft gamer girl, is a master of strategy and she knows what it takes to win. She even knows what it takes to win at other people's relationships when other students start coming to her for help smoothing out problems with their girlfriends and boyfriends. But when Evie falls in love with a real life guy, she realizes the tools of virtual living and gaming don't quite translate to the messy real life world of human relationships and emotions.  Who will win when the Virtual meets Actual?

Trojan Women: A Love Story

In Charles Mee’s Trojan Women: A Love Story, Dido reads Aeneas’ tarot cards in a post-apocalyptic spa and Cassandra manifests as a political activist with a taste for BDSM. In this world, ancient Greek gods co-exist with contemporary individuals and everyone is struggling with how to cope with the ravages of war. How to begin again after everything has been lost? Mee offers us the possibility of a feminist utopia just on the horizon, but is patriarchy so deeply ingrained that it will prevent the fruition of this more evolved society?

Mee offers us a script that is very modular, or open for change and re-conceptualization and interpretation. Therefore we have the freedom to select songs and insert dialogue as fits the cast and this contemporary moment.
