Theatre for a New Audience to Host Staged Reading of Bachman, Sokolow & Brown's IN REAL LIFE

Collaborators Trevor Bachman (The Nomad at The Flea Theater, Pyre Cantata at HERE Arts Center), Jonathan Sokolow (Bravo, Story Pirates), and Joshua Brown (Funny or Die, Night of the Living Beanie Babies) are at it again with an updated version of their new musical, IN REAL LIFE, presented this time at Theatre for a New Audience's Polonsky Shakespeare Center at 262 Ashland Pl on Tuesday, November 3rd.

This is the second phase in the development of the piece, coming out of a successful reading at Tisch School of the Arts in late-May 2015. Producers, Zachary Infante (TFANA) and Sydney Blaxill (The Flea Theater), have organized a closed reading to present the new draft to designers and collaborators.

Inspired by true events, IN REAL LIFE is a modern day, electro-acoustic ghost story about the real-life consequences of the digital world. The play surrounds the myth of Slenderman, an icon of Internet folklore who is attributed to the abduction of children and the subsequent violence of this generation's teenagers all over the world. Adults reconcile with the changing landscape of communication, as the deepest and most disturbing fantasies of childhood manifest into reality on and offline.

The piece is directed by Ashley Brooke Monroe (Fun Home) and the company includes Chrissy Albanese, Sydney Blaxill, Gabe Brown, Elizabeth Evans, Brian Falduto, Melanie Herrera, Stevi Incremona, Zachary Infante, Kira Kull, Michael Lorz, Ben Schrager and Matt Stillo.

IN REAL LIFE is presented to you by Unabridged Productions in association with Martín Lara.
