ROOMMATES A comedy by Joe Simonelli                            

PLEASE NOTE – SUNDAY JUNE 4TH MATINEE IS SOLD OUT –   Sunday June 11th filling rapidly.

I am now taking early reservations for June’s production and the Staten Island debut of my very first comedy “Roommates”. Not so “loosely” based on the author’s life.
 
When divorced accountant and aspiring novelist Frank Avino gets a call from the police, it can only mean trouble. His divorced friend Tom has just been tossed out of his girlfriend’s house and has no where else to stay. It is agreed he can stay with Frank in his tiny suburban New Jersey apartment for a few days until he gets his own place.  A few days quickly turns into a few months and begins to cramp ‘ladies man”  Frank’s style. Add in Frank’s suspicious landlord and his visiting mother from Brooklyn and you have a very funny mix!
“It would be so gratifying, not to mention prophetic and full of hindsight to say that Joe Simonelli is the next Neil Simon…”
