Project Abstract/ Summary
Charles Mee's Wintertime is an unusual piece, one of his re-creations of ancient plays. Mee believes firmly that nothing is original - Shakespeare borrowed from the Greeks, modern entertainment borrows from Shakespeare. He pulls together disparate elements from past theatrical works and meshes them with contemporary aspects, creating a play that is contemporary but never strays from its historical roots. As such, Wintertime is, by Mee's own description, "a sweet, dreamy, romantic comedy from the world of The Winter's Tale and The Cherry Orchard and Moliere and Magritte."
