In Love and Warcraft

World Premiere Kendeda Winner

"...a canny blend of Jane Austen and Cyrano de Bergerac — as viewed through a geeky collegiate lens...Over 10 years, the Alliance's playwriting competition has identified the literary stars of the next generation. [Playwright Madhuri] Shekar is no exception." — Wendell Brock for AJC

Evie is a master of relationships. Other people’s relationships. That’s why she has a waiting list of classmate clients willing to pay her top dollar to get their GFs and BFs back. How? She uses strategy, finds people’s weaknesses, and then attacks with words weaponized with just the right amount of guilt, longing, and/or lust – whatever a relationship may need. You know, all the skills and tactics she picked up on the way to becoming one of the best World of Warcraft players in the world.

As for Evie’s relationships? IRL (that is, In Real Life)? Well, all the action she’s interested in is happening on the battlefields of WoW. When it comes to sex, Evie is a complete, er, N00b and she’s just fine with that, thanks. Even despite the advances of Raul? Beautiful, smoldering Raul? Rhymes-with-grrraul Raul? He may just prove to be the most devious Boss she’s ever faced.
