Were the World Mine is a musical fantasy about a bullied gay student using magic to have his revenge on his tormentors. Timothy (Tanner Cohen) attends a private all-boys school, where he faces daily harassment from his homophobic schoolmates. He escapes his harsh reality with fanciful daydreams. His favorite fantasy involves a romance with a soccer player, hopelessly straight classmate Jonathon (Nathaniel David Becker), one of the few classmates who leaves him alone.

In the small town where he lives, Timothy also endures the hostility of his neighbors and propping up his often overwhelmed mother Donna (Judy McLane). When he is not in school, Timothy manages to forget some of his troubles with his close friends, Frankie (Zelda Williams) and Max (Ricky Goldman).

When his drama teacher, Ms. Tebbit (Wendy Robie), casts Timothy as Puck in the school’s production of Midsummer’s Night Dream, he gets the opportunity to change his life. While reading through the script, he discovers a hidden recipe for a love potion within the play. He decides to try to create the magical purple pansy at the center of the play’s plot. When he succeeds at creating a love-inducing flower, Timothy realizes he can open up the minds of his world.

The flower causes people to fall in love with the first person they see after experiencing its scent. So, Timothy decides to make the narrow-minded boys at school fall in love with one another. After his fellow students begin to change, Timothy no longer gets bullied. He also cannot resist trying the formula on his crush, Jonathan. He then expands his campaign to include the whole community, and the town begins to become a place of tolerance and fun. This imaginative comedy mixes musical numbers with social comedy.
