A play by Will Eno


Middletown is a deeply moving and funny new play exploring the universe of a small American town. As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge and new arrival Mary Swanson, the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points between.

Thornton Wilder’s Our Town." - TheatreMania

"Middletown is lusciously written, strangely poignant, dizzyingly modern spin on life." - Newsday,
