JOHN We were listening in on you guys earlier.
PONY Not in a weird way.
JENNIFER. Oh, good.
PONY. Yeah, we were just standing over there in the dark, totally still.
JOHN. It sounds worse when you put it into words.
Meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbours, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and shared last name. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities.
Gare St Lazare Ireland continue their exploration of Eno’s work following their award winning collaboration on Title and Deed which was written for the company in 2011. Life in Enoland isn’t what you’d call realistic — it’s more real than that. — Time Out New York Nominated for the Outer Critics and Drama League Award and listed by The New York Times as one of the “Best Plays of the Year,” The Realistic Joneses will haunt you long after the play ends, leaving you wondering whether we can ever truly know anyone, including ourselves. “A tender, funny, terrific new play. Mr. Eno’s voice finds glinting humor in the static that infuses our faltering efforts to communicate…as distinctive as any American playwright’s today.” – The New York Times
