Description

In THE REALISTIC JONESES, we meet Bob and Jennifer Jones and their new neighbors, John and Pony Jones, two suburban couples who discover they have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. Spare, suggestive, slyly hilarious, and strangely maddening, this profound play explores what is said, what is unsaid and the role that denial plays in helping us navigate life’s chaos. Nominated for the Outer Critics and Drama League Award and listed by The New York Times as one of the “Best Plays of the Year,” these characters will continue to haunt you long after you leave the theatre.

"Eno’s dialogue is a marvel of compression and tonal control, trivial chitchat flipping into cosmic profundity with striking ease [...] there’s much to savor: the dry but meaningful banter, the joy of humans sharing time and space, battling the darkness with a joke or silence. Life in England isn’t what you’d call realistic — it’s more real than that." - Time Out New York
"[...] each line is sharply refined with dry wit and packed with underlying meaning. The characters are written with impressive realism [...]" - The Oregonian
"Will Eno has written a play of such extraordinary wit and insight, so carefully constructed, it resonates for days. Lines of dialogue peal through your thoughts like distant bells." - Edge Media
