Reality Theatre

Trap Door Theatre
1655 W. Cortland Chicago

Written by Julia Lederer and directed by Emily Lotspeich, "Reality Theatre" is a fast-moving collection that explores our anxieties about change, the acceleration of technology, and maintaining human relationships in a world quickly becoming less and less human. "It's All in the Timing" meets "Black Mirror." Reality and fantasy blur for a woman playing a spoon in "Beauty and the Beast." A man reconsiders a contract signed in blood. The World Wide Web disappears into thin air. "Reality Theatre" is a collection of interwoven one-act plays about people who are stuck as the world changes around them in strange ways. Eight plays. Four storylines. One hour.

"...If you prefer a play with an easily digestible plot or the biting realism of a playwright like Tennessee Williams, this production may not be for you. However, if you enjoy edgy theater with a comedic twist, or an improv-infused, intelligent script, this may just be right up your alley (pun intended, Trap Door Theatre*). This eccentric, smart play delivered by a talented cast will have you laughing out loud, but even more importantly, will inspire a conversation for the whole ride home. What is reality theatre and what is Reality Theatre?"
