Product Description

Really Really, Paul Downs Colaizzo’s startlingly funny play about a group of Generation Me college students in the aftermath of a wild campus party, was one of off-Broadway’s most acclaimed hits upon its New York premiere at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (MCC) in 2012.

When morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, self-interest collides with the truth and the resulting storm of ambiguity makes it hard to discern just who’s a victim, who’s a predator, and who’s a Future Leader of America. All that’s certain is when the veneer of loyalty and friendship is stripped back, what’s revealed is a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive.

Praise for Really Really:

“It’s Lord of the Flies with smartphones... The terrific opening scene in itself justifies the advance buzz. Really Really is a take-no-prisoners indictment of the young men and women poised to inherit the earth.” —Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Unexpected and thrilling.” —New York Observer

Paul Downs Colaizzo has had his work has produced at MCC, Signature Theatre, Playwrights Horizons, Experimental Theatre Wing, and International Theatre Workshop, Amsterdam. Really Really marked Colaizzo’s New York playwriting debut and is the first play in his “Want, Give, Get” trilogy. His other plays include Little Gives, The Thing About Getting, Pride in the Falls of Autrey Mill, and For Tomorrow, Please Prepare. He holds a BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and lives in New York City.
