Sawtooth Productions, in association with Laughing Stock, is excited to announce another in its ongoing series of free play readings – The Realistic Joneses by Will Eno. It will take place in the Bailey Studio at the Argyros Theater on Thursday September 12th at 6:30. The cast includes Courtney Loving, Charlotte Hemmings, Chris Carwithen and Jon Kane, who also directs. Complimentary wine and cookies will be served. Running time 100 minutes.
The play debuted on Broadway in 2014 and was recently named by The New York Times as one of the top twenty plays of the last twenty years.
Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbors, John and Pony, are two suburban couples who have more in common than their identical last names. This existential comedy, pitched in Will Eno’s singular voice, finds the darkness, sweetness and hilarity in our fleeting and ordinary days, as we seek to reveal ourselves, and conceal ourselves, often in the same minute. Sometimes there are only short-term answers, to life’s eternal questions, but for all Joneses, like all of us, are going to try their best, in very different ways.
“Plays as funny and moving, as wonderful and weird as The Realistic Joneses do not appear often on Broadway. Or ever really…Mr. Eno’s voice may be the most singular of his generation.” – The New York Times
