Utopia Parkway

Mee, Charles L.

On a street in Queens—the only spot on earth where 46% of the population is foreign born—a young woman is treated badly, then treated worse, then treated worse than that, and finally tried and executed for a murder she didn't commit—so she rises from the dead and murders everyone, proving you can turn even the sweetest young woman in the world into a homicidal maniac, if you treat her badly enough. Inspired by a thirteenth century Chinese play. [8 actors]
