South Coast Repertory presents: 'The Roomate'
January 3-22, 2017

Sharon is sensible. An Iowan. An empty nester. Curious and very, very talkative. For the first time in her life, at age 54, she takes in a roommate to make ends meet. Robyn, a new arrival from the Bronx, is hiding a lifetime of secrets. But Sharon has a way of getting to the truth—the fascinating, shocking truth. This intriguing and funny play proves it’s never too late to shake things up—for better or worse.
