About this show

Serbian playwright Jelena Kajgo (Director, Bitef Festival and Theater) presents a super-charged, hyper-real world where five people - a psychiatrist locked in a love triangle with two of his patients, and another super successful couple -- struggle with modernity, money and power in a newly fashioned capitalist culture. Whether it's romance or a job, everything is up for grabs and usually goes to the highest bidder. Realists skewers American-style capitalism and its encroachment on Serbian daily life amidst the global financial crisis. The characters in Realists feel the sting of a changing worldwide economy, and the uncertainty of a society losing its traditional footing.
