by Will Eno

Directed by Lonon Smith


WINNER! of the inaugural Horton Foote Award for Most Promising New Play of 2010




















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.


"Delicate, moving, piercing, tart, funny, gorgeous. Mr. Eno’s gift may be unmatched among writers of his generation. Glimmers from start to finish."

- New York Times

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

- Newsday

"A play by Will Eno is a testament to the power of words and wordplay.
The worlds he creates are shaped by the cadence, timing and positioning of words to tell stories about the everyday.
In his absurdist, abstract drama 'Middletown,'...Eno offers up an old-fashioned version of smalltown life that is familiar but with a tilt to the surreal.

- Chicago Sun Times
