Presented by the Milwaukee Boulevard Theatre

In THE REALISTIC JONESES, acclaimed New York playwright Will Eno (author of such critically-acclaimed plays as THE FLU SEASON, MIDDLETOWN, TITLE AND DEED, THOM PAIN) crafts a quirky comedy where the older, ailing “Bob” (Milwaukee actor David Ferrie) and his loyal, exhausted wife “Jennifer” (local actress Sandra Hollander) meet their new, younger neighbors:  the very unorthodox “John” (Kenosha native Matt Specht) and John’s intriguing wife “Pony” (Milwaukee/Appleton actress Ericka Wade).   These two suburban couples have far more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names.   As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the four Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their rather imperfect realities.  Eno’s sharp-edged humor and unpredictable narrative combine to form a playful, yet affecting, portrait of “love & marriage” that is truthful, insightful, and often quite funny.

This very special concert reading is an enriched artistic experience, through a more emotionally ”heightened” approach than typically seen in more standard stage readings.  Significant focus will be given to the inner meanings of Eno’s sharp, pointed dialogue while showcasing the playwright’s delightful, daffy humor.  The necessary stage directions will be narrated by noted local performer and director David Flores.  This dynamic concert reading is directed by Boulevard Theatre Artistic Director and Founder, Mark Bucher.
