About The Real

Why can’t Drew remember anything or keep a straight thought for longer periods of time, and instead have resorted to folding cabbages from paper? Why won’t Henriette eat? Everyone always told Tom that he was destined to become a famous writer, so does it matter that the stories he writes harm the people around him? The mother Meg yearns to become independent, but what exactly happened to her daughter and why is she never there? Always watching and dictating is the Child, forcing everyone to keep busy, reach their full potential and strive to be real people – Otherwise they will be punished. Set in a heightened version of today’s world, The Real is a tragicomic story about four people who try to understand what it means to be real when their own reality itself is a representation. When their dreams, desires, constant self-improvement, and even choices are hardwired into them by an overly friendly, Big Brother like society.
