‘The Realistic Joneses’ is a carefully choreographed word play

All plays employ words. But relatively few are about words — about how we use language to reveal and conceal, to amuse and distract. In Will Eno’s “The Realistic Joneses,” now getting its Kansas City premiere in an impeccably performed Actor’s Theatre production at Union Station, words are shuttlecocks batted about in a carefully choreographed game of verbal badminton.
