The Realistic Joneses

Funny, moving and wonderfully weird meditation on the confounding business of being alive (or not).

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. Presented by Patina Productions, this funny, moving and wonderfully weird meditation on the confounding business of being alive (or not) runs for a 3-week season.

In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbours, John and Pony, 2 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.

Will Eno is a multi-award winning and Pulitzer prize-nominated American playwright based in Brooklyn, New York. The Realistic Joneses appeared on Broadway in 2014, starring Toni Collette, Tracey Letts, Marisa Tomei and Michael C. Hall, where it received a Drama Desk Special Award. This Sydney premiere is directed by Limelight on Oxford founder Julie Baz and designed by co-founder David Jeffrey, with lighting design by Mehran Mortezaei. The cast features some of Sydney’s best indie performers, Jeff Houston, Suzann James, David Jeffrey and Jodine Muir.

Housed in a beautiful old 3-level terrace, Limelight on Oxford provides an array of enticing entertainment and events.
