About

Directed by TRACY BRIGDEN

The Odd Couple meets Breaking Bad in this wickedly funny comedy. With a recent divorce and her son living across the country, 50-something Sharon posts a listing for a roommate to fill the empty space of her Iowa home. Enter Robyn, a fascinating woman who needs a place to hide and the chance to start over. When Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, she taps in to a deep-seated desire to abandon her comfort zone and live a life of danger and adventure. The Roommate cleverly navigates the rocky roads of change and hilariously examines what happens when the wheels come off.

“Jen Silverman brings humor and a wicked sense of anarchic fun.” — L.A. Times
 

ADVISORY: The Roommate is suitable for adults and teenage audiences. Sharon learns how to break bad through illegal scamming, drug use and dealing, a bit of strong adult language and mild sexual situations. You go, girl.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, with no intermission.
