Artists at Play is a theatre-producing collective of Asian American creative professionals in Los Angeles. We will present the West Coast premiere of Madhuri Shekar’s In Love and Warcraft, directed by Alejandra Cisneros.

In our fifth year of producing, we present In Love and Warcraft, a fresh look at the collision between online gaming and In Real Life (IRL) relationships. We have all been fans of Madhuri Shekar’s work, a delightful intersection of humor, love and subculture, and this play is no exception. Evie– 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… or is it?

In Love and Warcraft will have a 4-week run at the historic Los Angeles Theater Center (LATC) in September-October 2015. Our fundraising goal is $8,000, which will cover venue rental and rehearsal fees at this beautiful space in the artistic hub of Downtown L.A.  We also aim to provide proper stipends for artistic and technical personnel as we elevate production values, befitting this new space and the more fantastic elements of this particular show.

If you want to support Julia Cho and Artists at Play, go to their Indiegogo page and donate! They have less than THREE WEEKS to gather the funds, and we know you can help them do it!
