Dear Friends and Family,

Real Art Ways depends on you. And we need you now.

In September, in years past, we’ve hosted fundraising events—at Real Art Ways. We’ve netted $100,000 each year.

This year we can’t be together in person. But we can be together in spirit. And we believe we can generate $100,000 to support our work.

We won’t be able to do it together in one night. So we’re taking 30 nights—the month of September—to meet our goal.

Thanks to our sponsors, the good news is... we’re nearly halfway there! And the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has agreed to match your contribution dollar for dollar.

You will make it possible for Real Art Ways to survive, and thrive. Please help us meet our goal.

With gratitude,

Will K. Wilkins and The Real Team

Sleepwalk With Me at Real Art Ways

Sleepwalk With Me

6:30 | Lively discussion led by Dr. Adrian Salmon, Director of the Sleep Center at UConn Health

7:00 | Sleepwalk With Me

“I’m going to tell you a story, and it’s true…I always have to tell people that.” So asserts comedian-turned-playwright-turned-filmmaker, Mike Birbiglia, directly to the viewer at the outset of his autobiographically inspired, fictional feature debut.
We are thrust into the tale of a burgeoning stand-up comedian struggling with the stress of a stalled career, a stale relationship threatening to race out of his control, and the wild spurts of severe sleepwalking he is desperate to ignore. Based on the successful one-man show, Sleepwalk With Me engages in the kind of passionate and personal storytelling that transfigures intimate anguish into comic art.

"It all adds up to a fine, funny exercise in disheveled self-deprecation… Which, when you get right down to it, could describe almost any of us."
