“The Odd Couple” meets “Breaking Bad” in Threshold Stage Company’s Seacoast Premiere of “The Roommate”
The lives of two middle-aged women with completely opposite life-experiences intersect when they become roommates and forge an unlikely friendship. Robyn, vegan lesbian slam poet with an enigmatic past, moves from the Bronx, NY to Iowa City, Iowa. Sharon, a sheltered and naïve recently-divorced housewife in need of a roommate, welcomes Robyn into her home and becomes increasingly intrigued and inspired by the mysterious past that Robyn is attempting to leave behind. The friendship and unlikely partnership the two form results in unpredictable and outrageously humorous situations and revelations about who we are and the choices we make versus who we wish we could be.
It is an unexpected yet perfect setting for a smart, meaningful comedy with plenty of laugh out loud moments as “The Odd Couple” meets “Breaking Bad” in the Seacoast Premiere of Jen Silverman’s 2015 award-winning comedy “The Roommate”.
