Rubicon Theatre Company announces the sixth show of its 2022-2023 “Welcome Home” season, presented in association with Gare St. Lazare, Ireland and the Laguna Playhouse, Joe Spano, Faline England, Conor Lovett and Sorcha Fox starring in the Southern California premiere of The Realistic Joneses, written by Will Eno and directed by Judy Hegarty-Lovett. The Realistic Joneses begins preview performances on Wednesday, January 25 at 7:00 pm, with a press opening on Saturday, January 28 at 7:00 pm and runs through Sunday, February 12 at 2 pm at the Rubicon Theatre, 1006 E. Main Street in Ventura.
Meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbors John and Pony, two suburban couples who discover they have more in common than their identical homes and their surnames. Spare, suggestive, slyly hilarious, and strangely maddening, this profound play explores what is said what is unsaid and the role that denial plays in helping us navigate life’s chaos.
Nominated for the Outer Critics and Drama League Awards and listed by The New York Times as one of the “Best Plays of the Year,” The Realistic Joneses will haunt you long after the play ends, leaving you wondering whether we can ever truly know anyone, including ourselves.
Performances are Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (followed by a talkback), Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.; Fridays at 8:00 p.m.; Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.
Ticket prices range from $30.00- $79.50.
