“Playwright Jen Silverman brings a wicked sense of anarchic fun to ‘the invisible age.'” – DC Theatre Scene

The Odd Couple meets Thelma and Louise in this contemporary, new play, which was a recent hit at both The Humana and Williamstown Theater Festivals. Sharon, divorced, and living in a house in Iowa, decides she needs a roommate. Robyn, a slam poet 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 desire to transform her life completely. Heartbreaking and blisteringly funny, The Roommate offers an exquisitely real portrait of human connection.
