Presented by Fairleigh Dickinson University School of the Arts

In Real Life by Stacie Lents is a new tragicomedy about PT and LXS, two high school students who live at some point in the post-Trump future when the world has gone completely virtual. This play will take you on the rollercoaster of their rebellion against cyber reality and their attempt to connect in an actual world they have never known.
