Fifty-something Sharon takes a leap towards the dark side when she uncovers the secrets of her mysterious roommate in this wickedly funny comedy.
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.
