Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present The Roommate on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. The Roommate, written by Jen Silverman and directed by Sharon Winegar, is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.
This dark comedy follows Sharon, a middle-aged divorcee, who invites a roommate into her Iowa home. Robyn, also middle-aged and starting over, needs a place to hide out for awhile. As Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, she discovers a deep-seated desire to transform her own life. This play reveals what it takes to re-route your life and what happens when the wheels fall off.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation. Advance tickets are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, or at the door.
