WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"Heaven on Earth" is a collage play, written with Mee's unique philosophy that all art is both received and created, so texts are taken from and inspired by other texts. It combs through history to reveal a quirky but simple realization: that hope is inextinguishable because in spite of the calamitous darkness when eras pass and civilizations collapse, happiness endures in the small pleasures of life. To illustrate this, Mee weaves a collection of lyrical monologues about Roman ruins, the American Dust Bowl of the thirties, biodiversity in seeds, principles of Greek democracy, a financially ruined American widow who turns for help to family and friends, stadium building and stock car racing. The play incorporates texts from the catalog of Revolution Seeds, Isaac Bashevis Singer, O. The Oprah Magazine, and Arthur W. Leonard.
