Title and Deed  

Title and Deed $20.86 ex GST
$22.95 inc GST
Behold the newest nobody of the funniest century yet. He’s almost Christ-like, from a distance, in terms of height and weight. Listen closely or drift off uncontrollably, as he speaks to you directly about the notion of home, about the notion of the world. All of it delivered with the authority that is the special province of the unsure and the un-homed, which is a word he made up accidentally. The running time, if he doesn’t die or think of anything else, is roughly one hour. 

Title and Deed  is a provocative new work by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Horton Foote Prize winner Will Eno, whom  The New York Times  called “a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation.” 

Review
A haunting and often fiercely funny meditation on life as a state of permanent exile... The marvel of Mr. Eno’s voice is how naturally it combines a carefully sculptured lyricism with sly, poker-faced humour. Everyday phrases and familiar platitudes -“Don’t ever change,” “Who knows” - are turned inside out or twisted into blunt, unexpected punch lines punctuating long rhapsodic passages that leave you happily word-drunk. –  New York Times

Author

Hailed by the New York Times as ‘a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation,’ WILL ENO has emerged as a vital force in American theatre. Eno is the recipient of a Residency 5 Fellowship at the Signature Theatre where his play Title and Deed premiered in May 2012. The Realistic Joneses had its world premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre in April 2012. His play Middletown was a winner of the Horton Foote Prize and was produced at the Vineyard Theatre in New York and Steppenwolf in Chicago. His play Thom Pain (based on nothing) was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and has been translated into many Romance languages and several Slavic ones. Eno lives in Brooklyn.
