==Theater and film==
The theatrical term refers to a naturalistic representation of real life, sometimes used as an adjective, as in "a play with 'slice of life' dialogue". The term originated between 1890 and 1895 as a calque from the French phrase ''tranche de vie'', credited to the French playwright Jean Jullien (1854–1919).〔''Random House Unabridged Dictionary'', Random House, 2006.〕
Jullien introduced the term not long after a staging of his play, ''The Serenade'', as noted by Wayne S. Turney in his essay, "Notes on Naturalism in the Theatre":
''The Serenade'' was introduced by the Théâtre Libre in 1887. It is a prime example of ''rosserie'', that is, plays dealing with corrupt, morally bankrupt characters who seem to be respectable, "smiling, smiling, damned villains..." Jullien gave us the famous apothegm defining naturalism in his ''The Living Theatre'' (1892): "A play is a slice of life put onstage with art." He goes on to say that "...our purpose is not to create laughter, but thought." He felt that the story of a play does not end with the curtain which is, he says, "only an arbitrary interruption of the action which leaves the spectator free to speculate about what goes on beyond your expectation..."〔(Turney, Wayne S. "Notes on Naturalism in the Theatre". )〕
During the 1950s, the phrase had common critical usage in reviews of live television dramas, notably teleplays by JP Miller, Paddy Chayefsky,〔(Gottfried, Martin. ''All His Jazz'', Da Capo, 2003. )〕 and Reginald Rose.〔(Dowler, Kevin. "Reginald Rose". Museum of Broadcast Communications. )〕 At that time, it was sometimes used synonymously with the pejorative "kitchen sink realism" adopted from British films and theatre.
