The Roommate

THE ROOMMATE by Jen Silverman

Directed by Dena Martinez

June 19 – July 21, 2019
Sacramento Premiere

Sharon, in her mid-50s, is recently divorced and needs a roommate to share her Iowa home. Robin, also in her mid-50s, needs a place to hide and a chance to start over. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robin’s secrets, they encourage her own deep-seated desire to transform her life completely. A dark comedy about what it takes to re-route your life – and what happens when the wheels come off.

“The whimsical setup might suggest we’re heading into a modern descendant of ‘The Odd Couple,’ but there’s a more slyly subversive agenda in play. […] Silverman is an emerging talent to be reckoned with.” The Los Angeles Times

“Heartily entertaining! Full of surprises.” Chad Jones, Theatre Dogs
