Image 3 Middletown

Synopsis

Mary Swanson just moved to Middletown. About to have her first child, she is eager to enjoy the neighborly bonds a small town promises. But life in Middletown is complicated: neighbors are near strangers and moments of connection are fleeting. Middletown is a playful, poignant portrait of a town with two lives, one ordinary and visible, the other epic and mysterious. Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright Will Eno meditates on life in Middletown with his signature blend of absurdity and beauty.

“Reminiscent of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, if it had been penned by Dr. Seuss and edited by Samuel Beckett.”
Chicago Tribune

"Delicate, moving, piercing, tart, funny, gorgeous. Mr. Eno’s gift may be unmatched among writers of his generation. Glimmers from start to finish."
– New York Times
