If your parents were kind enough to spring for basic cable back in 1998, you might have been traumatized by ‘The Slap Heard Round the World’ on the Seattle edition of MTV’s The Real World — a benchmark in reality TV programming that has sadly become the norm. The figure at the center of that maelstrom is Irene McGee, a talented writer and lecturer in her own right who is previewing her one-woman show here in San Francisco. From her struggle with Lyme disease to the fallout of finding herself a permanent fixture of reality TV scandal reels to facing life in the real real world, you’ll hear it all from the woman herself.
