Better the neighbour you know?
Meet Bob and Jennifer Jones and the new couple next door, John and Pony Jones. The Joneses share more than a name, and more than they would like to admit.
A dazzling play of great wit and insight, The Realistic Joneses is about how we grapple with morality and deal with the immense mystery of life.
