Fiction

True Love

Mee, Charles L.

Based on Euripides' Hippolytus and Racine's Phaedra—but placed in America's trailer trash world, in which Phaedra does not restrain herself from sleeping with her fourteen year old stepson, and all the townspeople sit around the gas station talking about the extraordinary relationships they have had or known of, living in their normal world—each of them as true a love as human beings are capable of. [11 actors]
