"Realism "is an exquisite, surreal trip inside the mind of one man that delighted audiences at the Edinburgh International Festival in 2006. It follows the life of one man during an ordinary day but veers off from the commonplace to become a deliriously comic trip inside his wayward imagination. Dreams and day dreams are brought to life to hilarious effect exposing the fault lines between everyday life and the world of the imagination in which fantasies ignore conventions of taste and political correctness.It was described by the "Guardian "as a "bold and utterly distinctive all-singing, all-dancing show, like nothing else you'll ever see," and by the "Herald" as "an exquisite tragi-comedy for our times . . . It should strike a chord with anyone who's ever struggled to make sense of the modern world and their place in it. An absolute joy from start to finish."The text is published to coincide with its English premiere at the Soho Theatre in June 2011.
