In a little town in the mountains two couples named Jones grapple with the big and small questions of life in funny and not so funny ways in this 3 time Drama League and 2 time Drama Desk Award winning play mounted on Broadway to great critical acclaim in 2014.
“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…Mr. Eno’s voice may be the most singular of his generation, but it’s humane, literate and slyly hilarious. He makes the most mundane language caper and dance, revealing how absurd attempts at communication can be. He also burrows into the heart of his characters to reveal the core of their humanity: the fear and loneliness and unspoken love that mostly remains hidden beneath the surface as we plug away at life, come what may…The Realistic Joneses brought me a pleasurable rush virtually unmatched by anything I’ve seen this season.”
Charles Isherwood, NY Times, 2014
