The Exchange (formerly known as Jean Cocteau Repertory) presents two new works that were recent hits in the UK: Realism by Anthony Neilson and Jump! by Lisa McGee. Both shows will be directed by Ari Edelson.
Anthony Neilson's Realism guides audiences on a trip through one man's imaginative mind on an average day. Cabarets of crazy fantasies, poignant memories and childhood dreams shape a hilarious tragicomedy that leaps from the banal to the surreal and back again.
The Guardian called Realism "a wild delirious trip... particularly crafty in its dissections not just of our secret embarrassments, but also the way the thought police can't control what goes on inside our heads. It is a brave, bold and utterly distinctive all-singing, all-dancing show, like nothing else you'll ever see."
