    Description :
    * The dates for this performance might be impacted by COVID-19; for the latest information please visit see the Malthouse website * June 2017: Arriving home, Reality finds a team of armed federal agents waiting. They’re investigating a leak. Classified information has got out about Russian hacking to influence the US presidential election. Reality lets the agents in. They chat. They reposition. Gradually, it becomes clear: this is an interrogation. The genuine FBI recording of Reality’s interview so struck Tina Satter that she adapted it, word-for-word, as a ready-made script. Without any need for amendment, it plays so fantastically theatrically that it stands as testament to Realitys real-world wit and complexity. The 2019 premiere season in New York was a sellout. In 2020, the Brooklyn-based ensemble of performers come to Malthouse Theatre to share an urgent, globally relevant message of agency, power and patriotism within the patriarchy.
