When some people won’t believe you’ve changed, and others don’t want to let you change, it isn’t easy to make a new start.
Jay Johnson is fresh out of prison and determined never to go back, but for all his efforts to stay on track, he finds himself making a detour back in the wrong direction. Finally he’s faced with the hardest choice of his life and only then does he understand what he has to do to change things for real. The Realness has an upbeat score ranging from rap to reggae, gospel to grime.
The Realness is a musical masterpiece that was originally produced in 2014 as a co-production with Big Broad Productions.
“Unmissable…I guarantee that you’ll talk about this musical all the way home, and probably wake up the next day still thinking about it. It is edgy, poignant, comical, complex, and full of hope. In short, it’s real.” ★★★★★ Anna Malzy, Everything Theatre – The Realness at Hackney Downs Studios
