Shattered Globe Theatre and Theater Wit have announced the cast and design team for the Chicago premiere of Will Eno’s THE REALISTIC JONESES, directed by Theater Wit Artistic Director Jeremy Wechsler, who has directed the Chicago premieres of four of Eno’s plays.
THE REALISTIC JONESES will feature Shattered Globe Theatre ensemble members Cortney McKenna, Linda Reiter and Joseph Wiens with H.B. Ward.
The production team includes: Jack Magaw (scenic design), Hailey Rakowiecki (costume design), John Kelly (lighting design), Christopher Kriz (sound design), Vivian Knouse (props design), Ellen White (production manager), Katie Klemme (stage manager) and Devonte Washington (assistant stage manager).
Meet Bob and Jennifer Jones. And their new neighbors, John, and Pony Jones. These two couples have more in common than a last name. Join the Joneses as they muddle through the small beauties, immense fears, and amazing moments of each day. Time is short but there are gift certificates to enjoy, tiny fireworks to light and another perfect summer evening to take for granted.
Comments Wechsler, “This production marks my fifth collaboration with Will Eno, who I consider one of the most graceful and insightful playwrights in America. Will and I are looking forward to bringing one of his most popular works to Chicago, a city whose acting talents are nationally recognized. Along those lines, I am particularly excited to work again with the Shattered Globe ensemble. I know them as a sharp and uniquely Chicagoan acting troupe; together, we hope to bring Will’s truly hilarious and touching play to vivid life.”
THE REALISTIC JONESES runs January 10 – March 9 at Theater Wit. For more information visit shatteredglobe.org.
