Middlebury theatre department presents Will Eno’s ‘Middletown’

The Middlebury College Department of Theatre will continue its 2017-18 theatre season on November 30 with Will Eno’s 2010 play, “Middletown,” directed by Alex Draper.
Inspired by “Our Town,” the play, according to the New York Times, is a “delicate, moving and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere,” and one “that glimmers from start to finish with tart, funny, gorgeous little comments on big things: the need for love and forgiveness, the search for meaning in life, and the long, lonely ache of disappointment.”
Eno, who has been described as the Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation, is the author of “Thom Pain: Based on Nothing” (Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2005) and “The Realistic Joneses” (Drama Desk award winner in 2014), among others. “Middletown” was awarded the inaugural Horton Foote Award for Most Promising New Play.
“Middletown” will take the Wright Memorial Theater stage this Thursday, Nov. 30, and will run through Saturday, Dec. 2. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. each evening.
Tickets are $15 for the general public; $12 for Middlebury College faculty, staff, alumni, emeriti, and other ID card holders; and $6 for Middlebury College students. For tickets or information, call (802) 443-MIDD (6433) or visit go.middlebury.edu/arts.
