THE JONESES are here…

Our new neighbours, THE REALISTIC JONESES, have moved into Red Stitch, and they’ve certainly brought something special into our little home.

Here’s what reviewers are saying:

“Meyrick’s assured direction…balances comedy with poignancy.” – Herald Sun

“Pitch perfect…Hosking frequently steals the show with a performance that slow burns then blazes like a firecracker…felicitous casting and a deft touch that magics Eno’s script to life, squeezing out both the poetry and the pity. Simply splendid.”

– ★★★★½, Australian Book Review

“Eno generates plenty of absurd comedy…[a] deep well of complexity and nuance.”

– ★★★½ , The Age

“Top-level performances with Neil Pigot’s aging-Regan-styled Bob and Ella Caldwell’s high-energy-ethereal Pony as standouts, to take nothing away from the outstanding performances of Sarah Sutherland and Justin Hosking as Jennifer and John respectively…Julian Meyrick’s intricate knowledge of Eno’s work shines through in this production that leaves you enlivened and wanting more.”

– ★★★★, Arts Hub

“Sutherland’s performance is the definition of discretion, subtlety and responsiveness.”

– The Australian

“Wholly marvellous and funny…The care with which the performance is crafted, the vision and jocularity in matters so grave, blend to make this a truly dazzling production.”

– The Australia Times

“Director Julian Meyrick understands Eno’s idiosyncratic writing and gets terrific performances from his actors.”

– Stage Noise
