The realistic joneses
by Will Eno
December 10 and 11 at 7:00pm
Visit "The Realistic Joneses" and meet Bob and Jennifer. Their new neighbors, John and Pony, have even more in common than their identical homes and shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably entwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities.
Character descriptions are as follows:
Bob Jones - Male; a regular guy, wry, sardonic, weary from an unnamed illness from which he’s been suffering and which he doesn’t want to discuss.
Jennifer Jones - Female; Warm, sensible, mostly composed. Tries to maintain a cheery outlook despite the frustration she feels with Bob’s reluctance to open up to her about what is going on.
John Jones - Male; Uses humor to mask a vulnerability and doesn’t easily reveal to much about what is going on in his life.
Pony Jones - Female; Charming, friendly, openly curious, but says blunt things that can sometimes be taken the wrong way.
Rehearsals begin January 7.
Performances run February 22, 2018 through March 3, 2018 at 7:30pm.

Lee Street theatre is looking for a wide range of actors, ages, and genders so don’t be shy! No need to prepare any monologues but we will ask you to perform some cold readings from the script. All of the roles of these classic characters, from Tiny Tim to Scrooge himself, are paid positions. There will be a very short rehearsal process requiring mandatory participation from the entire cast. Please come prepared with a detailed list of conflicts starting from October 30th through the run of the tour, ending with our final performance on December 23rd.
During the Trolley ride, passengers will ride with Scrooge and experience his past, present and future, with each performance lasting about 45 minutes. There are 5 performances each night beginning at 6:00pm and ending at 9:45pm. For more information you can contact Lee Street theatre's Office at 704.310.5507.
