14/08/2006 - 19/08/2006
The world premiere of a new play by award winning playwright Anthony Neilson, marking the first collaboration between the National Theatre of Scotland and the Edinburgh International Festival.
Anthony Neilson’s previous Festival commission ‘The Wonderful World of Dissocia’ was a huge critical and commercial success; at once hilarious and deeply serious, it affirmed Neilson’s status as one of the major voices in contemporary theatre. Realism will reunite Anthony with The Wonderful World of Dissocia’s creative team, Miriam Buether, set designer, Chahine Yavroyan, lighting designer and composer, Nick Powell.
Anthony Neilson also directed ‘The Death of Klinghoffer’ for the Edinburgh International Festival in 2005 and earlier this year he directed HOME Edinburgh, one of the 10 theatre projects that launched the National Theatre of Scotland in February 2006.
