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. Robyn, also in her mid-50s, needs a place to hide and a chance to start over. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’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.

“This two-woman show is, in turns, hilarious, tense and surprising.”  SN&R 

“Outstanding acting shines in the hilarious Capital Stage play ‘The Roommate’.”  Davis Enterprise 

“Director Dena Martinez steers playwright Silverman’s dark comedy with aplomb. She lets the themes of friendship, trust and self-identity reveal the transformational possibilities of life. In her hands – and that of two extraordinary actors – Silverman’s saga of how to re-make oneself and how to deal with the consequences is excellent theater.”  Sacramento Press

Performance Length: 105 MINUTES, ONE INTERMISSION
