The Realistic Joneses
A Canadian Premiere
Presented by Wild Side Productions as part of the Roxy Performance Series
Bob and Jennifer meet their new neighbours, John and Pony. These two suburban couples have even more in common than their shared last names. As their relationships begin to intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities. A dark comedy about mortality.
“It’s two couples in a normal town, normal people in a somewhat strange situation that in fact reads to us as representative of what we all face,” playwright Will Eno says. “It’s a story of people doing what people do — you drive around and get groceries, and you do all this in the valley of the shadow of death. Really, you’re just getting groceries. But really, you’re also in the valley of the shadow of death.”
