In Love and Warcraft
Full Length Play, Comedy / 3m, 3f
Evie Malone - gamer girl, college senior, and confirmed virgin - has it all figured out. Not only does she command a top-ranked guild in Warcraft with her online boyfriend; she also makes a little cash on the side writing love letters for people who've screwed up their relationships. Love is like Warcraft, after all. It's all about strategies, game plans, and not taking stupid risks...
- WINNER! 2013-2014 Alliance/Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Award
Reviews"The winner of the 2014 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, [the play is] a canny blend of Jane Austen and Cyrano de Bergerac — as viewed through a geeky collegiate lens. Shekar stirs up great comedic shenanigans and one wholly original theatrical interlude. Over 10 years, the Alliance’s playwriting competition has identified the literary stars of the next generation. Shekar is no exception. In Love and Warcraft is a fresh look at the strange social behaviors spawned by Internet culture, where love and loneliness spar like the masters and the monsters of the universe." - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Read More
"Shekar’s fun and energetic play, which won the Alliance’s annual Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Fellowship, is jaunty and fleet, the way a romantic comedy should be." -Arts Atlanta, Read More
"The show progresses from real life to WOW in the second act." - Atlanta Cultural Arts Review, Read More
