A.C.T. and Perseverance Theatre present an encore virtual performance of Madhuri Shekar’s In Love and Warcraft. College senior Evie prefers the online role-playing game World of Warcraft to real life. In the game, she’s a fearless warrior with a boyfriend. In real life, she ghostwrites love letters for people, even though she’s never been in love. When Evie becomes attracted to her client Raul, she must decide whether or not to let her powerful and sexy warrior character out in the real world. Playwright Madhuri Shekar (House of Joy, HBO’s upcoming The Nevers) conjures a cosplay-loving romantic comedy about intimacy and love in the digital age. This is a remount of the ground-breaking MFA spring 2020 production that blazed a trail for new theater storytelling possibilities in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
