Renaissance Theaterworks concludes its 31st mainstage season with L'APPARTEMENT by Joanna Murray-Smith, March 24th - April 14th with preview performances on March 22nd and 23rd, at the Theater on 255 S Water Street in Milwaukee's Harbor District.

About the Play

Meg and Rooster are on their dream vacation –a decadent Paris getaway in a swanky Airbnb with no twin toddlers in sight. All is well until they pick up the keys from their French hosts. Serge and Lea are achingly cool and superbly chic. Their apartment is perfect. Their lives are perfect. This brief encounter with their departing hosts sparks a week-long series of hilarious, wine-fueled arguments as Meg and Rooster examine their middle class lives against the too-good-to-be-true backdrop of Serge & Lea's L'APPARTEMENT. 

A North American Premiere

Murray-Smith's L'APPARTEMENT has only been produced in her native Australia, to rave reviews. Having never been published, RTW produces it with special permission from the playwright.  Murray-Smith's name will likely sound familiar to Milwaukee Theatergoers, as RTW produced HONOUR in 2012 and The Rep produced BOMBSHELLS in 2010.
