Winner of two Drama Desk Special Awards. Arguably the best work yet from one of America’s wisest, most clever new playwrights of the past decade. In The Realistic Joneses, Will Eno connects two suburban couples who have so much 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 and, ultimately, confront mortality.

“’Nothing is funnier than unhappiness,’ we are told in Beckett, and so it is with this very fine play where laughter exists a heartbeat, or heartbreak, away from tears.”
