Serbian playwright Jelena Kajgo (Director, Bitef Festival and Theatre) 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.
This world premiere production of Realists will feature two of Serbia's most popular actors -- Uliks Fehmiu and Jelena Stupljanin -- alongside some of America's best talent -- Kevin Hogan (Impossible Marriage with Holly Hunter), Sean Meehan (Mourning Becomes Electra, The New Group) and Samantha Soule (Dinner at Eight, Lincoln Center).
