Someone once said to me… I had to decide whether my plays are funny, or sad. I politely responded that I’d decided to leave that up to each audience member.
– Charlotte Meehan
So said Sleeping Weazel Artistic Director Charlotte Meehan in an ArtSake q&a, last year. Well, audiences will get their chance to make up their minds about the funny/sad-ness when Real Realism, her latest play, opens on May 31, 2013 at The Factory Theatre in Boston.
The play, which Sleeping Weazel says is alternately hilarious and ferocious, follows five strangers thrown together and pushed in unexpected directions when they’re all admitted to an undisclosed “treatment center.”
Real Realism runs May 31–June 1 and June 6–June 8, 2013, with a pay-what-you-can preview May 30, at The Factory Theatre. All shows begin at 7:30 PM.
