About the show

In Slingshot Theater Company's world premiere comedy, when a high schooler fails to get cast in her school musical, she sets out to create her own show about her favorite subject: herself. More…

When Tamra Wasserman fails to get cast in her high school's production of 'Anything Goes,' she realizes that her sensational talents are being maliciously ignored by her fascist theater teacher. Naturally, Tamra decides to take matters into her own hands by writing, directing, producing and starring in the world’s most innovative and important play, 'Tamra Wasserman: This is Real, This is Me (An evocative autobiographical play by Tamra Wasserman)'.  Part autobiographical, part experimental and all unwarranted, Tamra’s life unfolds before our eyes.
