Dark Comedy

Characters: 4 males, 3 females

Are news and entertainment interchangeable? A cocksure TV bigshot faced with dwindling ratings installs America's favorite news anchor as host of a popular reality show. Meanwhile, in Middle America, a houseful of roommates bickers over high-stakes real-world conflicts: Merv doesn't clean the bathroom. Someone ate Alice's yogurt. And the rent is long past due. When reality collides with reality TV, we find ourselves front and center in a drama that holds the nation riveted.
Our House is a deliciously scathing new comedy that takes on a media-obsessed culture intent on turning even the most sobering crisis into sexy entertainment.

A darkly comic look at America's obsession with "reality" television.

Our House had its New York City premier at Playwrights Horizons in 2009.
