An an orientation camp for new teenage clones, teens are sent to “Camp I.M.U.” fresh from the lab to make a transition into the world of the “Originals” who have ordered them made. The newest “Copy” (a word they prefer to “clone”) to arrive is a very bright and positive teenager named Michael who soon realizes what the other copies in his cottage have known for awhile – that their stay at the camp is much longer than they had thought. Michael befriends a rebellious Copy named Melissa, who does not get along with her Original and refuses to change her attitude in order to please her. She informs Michael, and the other Copies, that she is going to escape from the camp and fight for what she calls “copy rights”. This is a story right out of tomorrow’s headlines. Not good at math? Have a clone of yourself made from your own DNA, but gifted in math to do your problems for you. Need a spare part for the future? Your clone is a walking talking parts store. Copies explores the heart and soul of clones, bred specifically to do all those things you don’t want to do.
Developed in workshop at the Tony Award winning American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) In San Francisco.
