The Odd Couple meets Thelma and Louise in this contemporary, new play by up-and-coming playwright Jen Silverman. Sharon, divorced, and living in a big house in Iowa, decides she needs a roommate. Robyn, a vegan from the Bronx, is escaping her past and needs to start over. Despite their differences, Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, and discovers her own, deep desire to transform her life completely. Heartbreaking and blisteringly funny, The Roommate addresses themes of aging, femininity, and identity in this exquisitely real portrait of human connection.
