Until the End, Come on Real.
A Play (Off) by Miriam Laura Leonardi, April 2023
RM at CEC 2023
Until last summer we used to go by a name written Real Madrid, pronounced either rɪəl məˈdrɪd, or ře’al ma’ðrid . After legal threats by a namesake company we had to disown that moniker and disclose being unpatented knockoffs. It was a matter of ticking time, of who trademarked facts first and once – for the moment we use the shortened RM but pronunciation stays unaltered.
We want this show to be an unbaptism, a debut against copyrighted one-off geniuses, an and to a story, a stack of counterfeit merch and a spoonful of the shared minestrone of ideas, and also another unoriginal show about identity.
