KAZAN CO-OP presents The Realistic Joneses by Will Eno
Directed by Bryden MacDonald

Various Showtimes - May 9th to 19th, 2019

Meet the Joneses, Bob (Christian Murray) and Jennifer (Kathryn MacLellan) and their new neighbours Pony (Gil Anderson) and John (Matt Lumley) two couples who have more in common than their shared last name. With compassion and great humour Will Eno takes a brilliant look at the quirks and challenges of everyday life.

"Plays as funny and moving, as wonderful and weird as The Realistic Joneses, by Will Eno, do not appear often on Broadway. Or ever, really." - The New York Times

"Mr. Eno’s voice may be the most singular of his generation, but it’s humane, literate and slyly hilarious. He makes the most mundane language caper and dance, revealing how absurd attempts at communication can be. He also burrows into the heart of his characters to reveal the core of their humanity: the fear and loneliness and unspoken love that mostly remains hidden beneath the surface as we plug away at life, come what may...For all the sadness woven into its fabric, The Realistic Joneses brought me a pleasurable rush virtually unmatched by anything I’ve seen this season." - The New York Times Will Eno has written a play of such extraordinary wit and insight, so carefully constructed, it resonates for days. Lines of dialogue peal through your thoughts like distant bells." - Edge Media
