Shattered Globe Theatre presents
THE REALISTIC JONESES
January 11-March 9, 2019
By Will Eno Directed by Jeremy Wechsler A co-production with Theater Wit
“You were funny and weird, and you made me feel better. And I remembered people can do that. That talking with someone can make you feel better.” – Jennifer Jones
Bob and Jennifer Jones are drifting through their isolated suburban life until one fateful evening when they meet their new neighbors, John and Pony Jones. Soon, the couples find that they share much more than a last name. In this funny, intimate and profound meditation on life, the four Joneses muddle through the strange and amazing moments of each day knowing that “talking with someone can make you feel better”, but fearing that actual communication may elude them in the end.
Shattered Globe teams up with Theater Wit to introduce Chicago to what The New York Times calls one of the “25 Best Plays Since Angels in America.”
Performances take place at Theater Wit (1229 W Belmont) where SGT is a resident company.
