.screenrc and env variables

Hi all,

   I trying to modify an environment variable in my
.screenrc file. I have that variable set in my .bashrc
file but when I launch screen, I want it to be set to
a different value by the .screenrc file. In my .bashrc
file I have

export WORK=~/work

I want this to be ~/work1 .. so I tried

setenv WORK ~/work1 in the .screenrc file but that
dint help.

I also tried using the shell command

shell bash --rcfile .blah, where .blah has
export WORK=~/work1

but then screen complains about the argument count to
the shell command.

Any ideas on how to do this?
