The Midnight Company has been granted the rights to present Will Eno’s acclaimed one-man show TITLE AND DEED. Midnight will present TITLE AND DEED in June, 2017, with theatre space and schedule to follow.
TITLE AND DEED offers a solitary man, an immigrant to our shores – the newest nobody of the funniest century yet. The Chicago Tribune described the character as a “most welcome visitor, a provocateur with deep thoughts, an outsider who helps us see ourselves. “ The New York Times said TITLE AND DEED was a “haunting and fiercely funny meditation of life as a state of permanent exile,” with “mesmerizing long rhapsodic passages that leave you happily word-drunk” (Chicago Tribune).
Will Eno is also the author of THE REALISTIC JONESES (Drama Desk Award several Best Play 2014 lists), THE OPEN HOUSE (Obie, Lortel, Drama Desk Awards, several top ten plays 2014 lists), and THOMPAIN (based on nothing), a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Christopher Isherwood in the NY Times said, “If you found THOMPAIN as moving and mesmerizing as I did, you are likely to feel much the same about TITLE AND DEED, which is a bit more whimsical and digressive if no less gorgeously and inventively wrought, line by line.”
The Midnight Company has produced THOMPAIN twice, in 2006 and earlier this year, with Midnight Artistic Director Joe Hanrahan in the title role. Hanrahan will also perform the central role in TITLE AND DEED.
He is directing Slightly Askew’s CUDDLES by Joseph Wilde at this time, and upcoming he’ll be appearing in Midnight’s LITTLE THING BIG THING by Donal O’Kelly in January, and directing Arthur Miller’s A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE at Clayton Theatre in February.
Sarah Whitney, Midnight’s Associate Director, will direct TITLE AND DEED.
