About the Play:

The Real World? (English version of Le vrai monde?) is a play by Michel Tremblay.

A young playwright faces a tough question: does the play he has written contain a fair representation of his family, or a false one? The audience gets a chance to judge for themselves, since both families appear on stage throughout.

In Michel Tremblay's words, "I decided to return to the very source of creative work, that notorious first play which supposedly contains the seeds of everything yet to come. And ultimately, I found myself confronted with the fundamental question: did I have the right? Do I still have the right?…."

Cast: 4 women and 3 men.

What people say:

"It is Tremblay's triumph that The Real World finds interesting new ways of expressing and illuminating… ideas… with writing of rare musical beauty." — Toronto Star

"Tremblay's strength lies in his depiction of the ambiguities of family ties, the resigned compromises, grudging understandings, the modi vivendi tacitly arrived at, often to the angry amazement of outsiders." — Financial Times (UK)
