The Real World?

It has been playing for a few weeks now and not only did it open to strong reviews, it also has the the incredible Meg Tilly as a starring cast member. Something to maybe check out over the long weekend? For tickets please click here.

Show Description:

Should or can playwrights truly "write what they know"? If they use their family members as characters in a play, whose play is it? Whose truth is it? And what happens when those family members stand up to their artist son and object to their theatrical selves? The Real World? remains a groundbreaking play about art, autobiography and authority.

Michel Tremblay has been a dominant figure in Qu├ębec theatre since the late 1960s; his plays have been performed around the world. Tarragon was the home for many of his English-language premieres, including Hosanna, Les Belles-Soeurs and Albertine in Five Times, and has produced 13 of his plays. Tarragon is reviving this Canadian classic nearly 25 years after it premiered in English on our stage. A PLAY IN ONE ACT. THERE WILL BE NO INTERMISSION.
