For Real
 

The University Dramatic Society is proud to present this year’s original musical, "For Real".

Gillian lives and breathes Mallorey – the cheerful, not-at-all sinister media empire, best known for its family-friendly content, tax evasion and worker exploitation. But when she becomes one of the lucky underpaid workers at her local Mallorey store, she’s surprised to discover not everyone shares her obsession.

And who else is just as surprised? Her imaginary friends, of course.

A superhero warrior princess with an identity crisis, a teenage heartthrob who’s contractually obliged to be straight, and a pop star worshipped as a bona fide goddess are just some of the colourful Mallorey-inspired gang that live in Gillian’s generic imagination. But as she discovers living in the real world is actually kinda nice, her fantastical friends fight to literally change her mind.

For Real is a satirical comedy about media monopolies, fanatical fantasies, and, like, life.
