The Realistic Joneses is an affecting world to occupy; it lingers with me everywhere now.
The play is very funny from the outside, however from the inside it is confronting; I would even go so far as to say frightening. It also reveals a beautiful humanity. The playwright, Will Eno, asks us to delve into big, difficult questions…about love, about mortality, and he guides us gently.
Eno is an expert in precise, poetic language wrapped in intelligent humour and characters who are a delight to play. And I am lucky to be working with brilliant cast mates Sarah, Justin and Neil, and our exceptional director Julian.
The coming week will be one of long days and late nights as we discover how the production transitions from rehearsal room to the theatre, and before long we will be ready to share it with you.
See you in the foyer afterwards,
By Will Eno
Directed by Julian Meryrick
