Join Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University Department of Performing Arts, as we open our 46th anniversary season with Will Eno’s dramatic comedy, Middletown.
Welcome to Middletown: population, stable. Mary Swanson has just arrived and is settling into her new community. Will Eno’s eloquent, funny, and moving play takes us on a journey across the spectrum of humanity, from City Hall to the local library to the depths of outer space. Middletown reminds us that the nuances of life are what make us human, and every now and then we should take a moment to look around and appreciate the absurd beauty of it all. Winner of the 2010 Horton Foote Award for Most Promising New Play. Featuring guest artists Jacqui Cross and Ben Wolfe.
“Mr. Eno’s gift may be unmatched among writers of his generation. Glimmers from start to finish.” — The New York Times
