Platonic Beauty

The Real Ones is set to make its world premiere in London, bringing to the stage a poignant and humorous exploration of friendship, dreams, and the complexities of life. Zaid and Neelam are best friends who once shared a vision of escaping their current lives, becoming successful writers, and finding the freedom to be their authentic selves. Despite their shared dreams, reality takes them on divergent paths, both facing the challenges and sacrifices that come with personal growth.

Zaid finds himself stuck, grappling with his identity and aspirations while still living at home, yet Neelam, on the other hand, has gone in a direction that distances her from the shared dream. As unspoken tensions and unresolved issues stack up, will the once-inseparable pair can reconcile their differences and rediscover their bond? A heartfelt tribute to the beauty of platonic friendships, The Real Ones comes from the creators of the Olivier Award-winning The P Word.
