THE REALISTIC JONESES
About The Show
Named as one of the '25 best American plays since Angels in America' by the New York Times, The Realistic Joneses is a hilarious, quirky and touching portrait of marriage, life and squirrels.
Will Eno’s play begins in a suburban backyard one bucolic evening where Bob and Jennifer Jones, and their new neighbours, John and Pony Jones, find they have more in common than their identical homes and last name.
The couples find they are drawn to each other and their desperate attempts to connect evolve into a funny, intimate and profound meditation on life.
The Realistic Joneses appeared on Broadway in 2014, where it received a Drama Desk Special Award and was named Best Play on Broadway by USA Today, and best American play of 2014 by The Guardian.

The Sunday Times
‘Blessed with note-perfect performances from a quartet led by the quietly authoritative Sharon Small … Corey Johnson is superb’
‘A deeply felt snapshot of everything that makes us human’
‘Teasingly funny yet poignant’
