The Realistic Joneses

January 14 - January 15, 2023

It’s a simple premise: Bob Jones and his wife Jennifer meet their new next-door neighbors, John and Pony Jones, and they proceed to discuss their lives. “But don’t come to the play expecting tidy resolutions, clearly drawn narrative arcs or familiarly typed characters. ‘The Realistic Joneses’ progresses in a series of short scenes that have the shape and rhythms of sketches on ‘Saturday Night Live’ rather than those of a traditional play…but cut to the heart of how we muddle through the worst life can bring.” (NY TIMES)
