New Jersey has a sassy new cast of Housewives and they’re not what you might expect!
Housewives of Secaucus, a Suburban Travesty is a new parody play written and produced by LaughOutLoud Productions, a theater group based in Highland Mills, NY, and pays homage to Garden State reality TV with elements of The Jersey Shore and Mob Wives and, of course, The Real Housewives.
The comedy show focuses on five fictional women in Secaucus who are on a “Free Nookie” campaign. Nookie — the sixth member of their group — was arrested when she went bar hopping with her infant child in tow. Are we sure this is fictional…?
But Secaucus residents shouldn’t get too worked up that playwright Sean Patterson decided to have his larger-than-life characters hail from the north Jersey town.
“No disrespect,” Patterson told NJ.com. “But it is a funny sounding name.”
In fact, much of the cast is originally from New Jersey, which the author hopes provides a “personalized, local experience” for other Garden State theatergoers.
“A show like this is not meant to be taken seriously, so come in and have a good time,” added Patterson.
Housewives of Secaucus will run throughout the summer at venues in both NJ and NYC, including a July 16 show at Rhino Studio Theater in Pompton Lakes!
