Why you should see In Love and Warcraft

Because it’s a delightfully raunchy rom-com (grownups only, please) with tons of heart.
Because playwright Madhuri Shekar writes the most fascinating and badass characters. “​​Her women are so super fierce, very articulate, very intelligent,” says Mia Katigbak of the National Asian American Theatre Company.
Because even the best gamers need a screen break sometimes.


Meet Evie, a college senior and gamer who’s a master at both online role-playing and real-life ghostwriting — her side hustle is writing love letters for other people. But she’s navigating the complexities of love and sex without firsthand experience. As she becomes drawn to one of her clients, Evie must learn to unleash her powerful persona in the real world. Level up your laughter and your heart with this hilarious, raunchy, R-rated take on intimacy and love in the digital age.
