THE ROOMMATE

THE ROOMMATE

November 7th, 2019
Renaissance Theaterworks

Written by Jen Silverman & Directed by Suzan Fete

Featuring Marti Gobel & Isabel Quintero

Sharon has been respectable her whole life. Now in her mid-fifties and recently divorced, she needs a roommate to share her Iowa home. Robyn, also in her mid-fifties, needs a place to hide and a chance to start over. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, she realizes her own deep-seated desire to transform her life completely.

A dark comedy about what it takes to reroute your life – and what happens when the wheels come off.

“Silverman’s THE ROOMMATE is a tragedy that subtly grows beneath peals of uproarious laughter!” – Broadway World

Approximate run time: 90 minutes with no intermission
