The Realistic Joneses
by Hyde Park Theatre
Feb. 25 - Mar. 26, 2016
"Plays as funny and moving, as wonderful and weird as The Realistic Joneses, by Will Eno, do not appear often on Broadway. Or ever, really. . . . Easily his most accessible play . . . The Realistic Joneses brought me a pleasurable rush virtually unmatched by anything I've seen this season." That's the New York Times raving about the 2014 Broadway run of this marvelous play.
When Bob and Jennifer meet new neighbors John and Pony, they find they have much more in common than identical homes and shared last names. Hilarious, tender, unforgettable. Directed by Ken Webster.

Wikipedia: Bob Jones and his wife Jennifer meet their new next-door neighbors, John and Pony Jones. They discuss their lives, giving an "inside look at the people who live next door, the truths we think we know and the secrets we never imagined we all might share." Eno said that he wrote The Realistic Joneses because he " 'wanted to really just write a naturalistic and realistic play.' Not that 'Realistic Joneses' is precisely realistic. Both plays ['Open House'] read like sitcoms broadcast from a weirder, more melancholy world."
