REGIONAL PREMIERE. Brooklyn meets Iowa City when Sharon finds a ‘sensible’ roommate. She quickly learns that Robyn couldn’t be further from the conservative ladies in her book club.
Hell-bent on getting to know Robyn, Sharon deploys her charm. The Roommate tells the story of two humorously mismatched middle-aged women, both with the overwhelming desire to reinvent their lives.
