Meet Bob and Jennifer, and their new neighbors John and Sally, two suburban couples who have more in common than their identical homes and the same last name on their mailboxes. Two electrifying artists team up at Yale Rep for the world premiere of The Realistic Joneses. Dubbed â€œa Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generationâ€ by The New York Times, playwright Will Eno burst onto the scene in 2005â€”picking up a Pulitzer Prize nomination along the wayâ€”for his play Thom Pain (based on nothing). His recent Middletown was hailed as â€œtotally engrossingâ€ (Associated Press) and â€œutterly spellbinding!â€ (Time Out New York). Director Sam Goldâ€™s recent New York premieres of Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens, and Tigers Be Still have secured his place as one of the most insightful and sought-after directors of his generation.
