By: Jen Silverman
Directed by: Melissa Livingston+
Venue: The CVA Flex Theater
Dates: September 8 - 26
Recently divorced Sharon is an unassuming, nice Midwesterner in need of a roommate. Bronx-born Robyn needs a place to hide and start over. Comically mismatched, the unlikely duo forges a surprising friendship. Part Thelma and Louise, part The Odd Couple, and part Breaking Bad, The Roommate is a smart new comedy about mid-life challenges, chance cohabitation, and personal reinvention.
"Equal parts nuanced and comically exaggerated, The Roommate addresses themes of aging, femininity and identity in a fresh, humorous way." - WFPL
"Jen Silverman's The Roommate, a new play about isolation, second chances and the consequences of our choices, is as tragic as they come - and it's a tragedy that grows beneath peals of uproarious laughter." - Broadway World
