Adam and Evie by Charles L. Mee
Much of our life is spent coupling, uncoupling, or recoupling. Were obsessed by love and sex: how to get it, how to keep it, or how to get out of it and try again. In this new work, multiple-award-winning visionary playwright and poet Charles L. Mee looks at love from Adam and Eve to our own rapidly changing times where the possibilities of thwarting yourself in love expand with every new boundary we cross. In Adam and Evie Mee joyously celebrates our unruly, childish, wise, heart-breaking, romantic, and lustful longings in gorgeous language, startling images, and the comic mishaps of dozens of lovers who bounce off each other in gradually more complex interactions resulting in a final, glorious paean to the thrill and ache of love.
Among other awards, Charles Mee is the recipient of a lifetime achievement award in drama from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, two Obie Awards, for Vienna: Lusthaus (1986) and Big Love (2002), PEN/Laura Pels Foundation Award for Drama for a playwright in mid-career, and the Fisher Award given by the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
