FALL QUARTER 2020
MYNX AND SAVAGE by Rebecca Gorman O’Neill
Bellevue College Fall production, directed by Tammi Doyle
This special online production will be streamed Nov. 18-21, 2020
Comic book characters, their alter egos and their creators intertwine in this multi-leveled story of moving on.
Adam is a comic book writer coasting on his past successes of the comic book Mynx and Savage. Much to his chagrin, his employer has assigned him a partner, Ket, to ensure he makes his next deadline. Ket is young and ambitious; her life was changed by Adam’s first serious graphic novel, about a Doll and her child.
As the duo sets to work on the 100th issue of Mynx and Savage, fantasy bleeds into reality as the superheroes and their mild-mannered alter egos invade the artists’ space. Adam finally comes to trust Ket enough to share the work he’s actually doing: A graphic novel about Jill and Kyle, two childhood friends on summer break who dream of superheroes. Where Kyle is frightened, Jill is brave; where Kyle is secretive, Jill insists on honesty. This is the story that tortures Adam; the origin story of Mynx and Savage.
In the end, as the worlds of the children, the superheroes and the artists collide, Ket helps Adam realize that he has no future until he makes amends with his past.
