Named Best Play on Broadway by USA Today and best American play of 2014 by The Guardian, the Sydney premiere of THE REALISTIC JONESES by Will Eno is coming to boutique performance venue, Limelight on Oxford in Darlinghurst. Presented by Patina Productions, this funny, moving and wonderfully weird meditation on the confounding business of being alive (or not) has a three week season in the LIMELIGHT ROOM, playing 13-30 March 2019.
In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbours, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities.
"Fully enjoyable as a piece of entertainment, and deeply valuable as a perspective-altering mirror of life." - LIMELIGHT
