    Casual Joy and Dread, Mingling Every Day

    Charles Isherwood

    May 1, 2012: NEW HAVEN — Intimations of mortality hover in the pauses punctuating the dialogue in “The Realistic Joneses,” the tender, funny, terrific new play by Will Eno at the Yale Repertory Theater here. Mr. Eno’s voice, which teases out the poetry in the pedestrian and finds glinting humor in the static that infuses our faltering efforts to communicate, is as distinctive as any American playwright’s today. He writes about big matters — nothing bigger than life and death, after all — as if they were incidental oddities deserving of wry comment but no great moralizing or posturing.

    The Realistic Joneses

    Frank Rizzo

    April 29, 2012: Meet the Joneses. And meet the Joneses again. They're two couples that share more than a surname in Will Eno's weird and wonderful play, getting its world preem at New Haven's Yale Repertory Theater. Eno has a field day with existential dualities that come on like doppelgangbusters. High-profile cast (Parker Posey, Tracy Letts), hip helmer Sam Gold and a seemingly more accessible -- and very funny -- work assures a route to Gotham.

    Fate works in strange ways in ‘The Realistic Joneses’

    Don Aucoin

    April 30, 2012: NEW HAVEN — No sooner had a performance of “The Realistic Joneses’’ ended than the sour-faced guy seated behind me at Yale Repertory Theatre rendered his verdict: “Absolute nonsense,’’ he growled. “It just floated up in the air and disappeared.’’

    The Realistic Joneses

    Chris Kompanek

    April 28, 2012: Like Samuel Beckett, Will Eno uses the structure of language itself to tell a story. His characters often grapple with finding the right words to express themselves and the realization that sometimes those words don't exist. His thought-provoking new work, The Realistic Joneses, now getting a superb production at Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, is no exception.

    Keeping up with these Jones a rewarding venture in Yale Rep world premiere

    Andrew Beck

    April 27, 2012: While it may initially be easy to dismiss the four title characters in Will Eno's refreshingly absurd "The Realistic Joneses" as anything but real, this new play captures with more honesty and compassion the fear and dread that lies at the core of so much of modern life.
