In this modern comedy with a dark twist, audiences pay a visit to The Realistic Joneses. We meet Bob and Jennifer. Their new neighbors, John and Pony, have even more in common with them than identical homes and shared last names. As the couples’ relationships begin to irrevocably entwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities.

Written by Will Eno, The Realistic Joneses was nominated for three 2014 Drama League Awards for Outstanding Production Of A Broadway Or Off-Broadway Play and Distinguished Performance Award (Michael C. Hall and Tracy Letts). The production was also recognized twice for the 2014 Drama Desk Special Awards.

“The Realistic Joneses by Will Eno is truly mesmerizing,” Directing Intern of Catawba College Peyton Glendinning weighs in. “Eno has crafted a play that intentionally veers away from the intense displays of emotion that an audience member usually encounters at the theatre. Instead, The Realistic Joneses is reflective of its title—realistic... The characters engage in a dialogue that brilliantly dances around weighty topics. As an emerging theatre director, this play presents exciting obstacles for me. The play itself is deep and complex while maintaining a strong comedic cadence... The actors are working equally as hard to fully capture the complexities of their characters as we move through the rehearsal process. At the end of the process, I believe we will have a production that excites and engages audiences in a way that is different than a typical night at the theatre.”

The cast includes Craig Kolkebeck as Bob Jones, Kindra Steenerson as Jennifer Jones, Matthew Monte as John Jones, and Alyssa Whiting as Pony Jones. The Creative Team includes the talents of Peyton Glendinning as CataLST Directing Intern, Rod Oden as Lighting Designer and Technical Director, Caitlin Billings as Marketing Director, Craig Kolkebeck as Lee Street theatre Artistic Director, and Mary Cheek as Stage Manager.

This production is inappropriate for young children. Performances will be held at Lee Street theatre Performing Arts Center at the Tom & Martha Smith Event Center at 329 N Lee Street, Salisbury, NC 28144. Performances will run February 22-24 and March 1-3 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $17.55 and available online at www.leestreet.org or by phone 704.310.5507.
