NOW PLAYING
Meet the Joneses – Bob and Jennifer, and their neighbours, John and Pony – two couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and shared last names. With compassion, great humour, and a fine eye for the quirks of contemporary life, The Realistic Joneses dives deep below the surface to expose the extraordinary heroism of the everyday.
★★★1/2 (out of 4)  “Eno’s is an original theatrical voice; a poignant and pitch-perfect production; superb cast” – The Globe & Mail 
“That [Broadway] production, with a starry cast, was good, but the Tarragon one, directed by Richard Rose, is better. It’s certainly much funnier, the four actors feast on the wrong-footing and second-guessing with which these Joneses strive to keep up with one another.” – National Post
★★★ (out of 4) “[Eno] is a master of dialogue; this isn’t a disease play, or an infidelity play, or a language play – its beauty is how it shimmers between all of these.” – The Toronto Star 
NNNN “Weird, funny and unexpectedly poignant” – NOW Magazine
“Plays as funny and moving, as wonderful and weird as The Realistic Joneses, do not appear often on Broadway; a pleasurable rush virtually unmatched by anything I’ve seen this season.” – Charles Isherwood, New York Times (Broadway production)
The running time of The Realistic Joneses is approx. 1h 40minutes with no intermission.
