In Will Eno's Middletown, wry, mordant musings on life and death abound in the face of a vast and unknowable universe. The characters range from Mechanic to Librarian, Policeman to Handyman, Landscaper to future mother, and more. Around them, the residents of Middletown live out their days, each thinking in his or her way, "There's people like me in the world, I think. You don't hear much from us because we usually don't say anything. But we're out here, trying to get a hold on the whole thing."

Eno was a Pulitzer-prize finalist in 2004 for his one-man play Thom Pain (based on nothing). He has been commissioned by the Royal National Theatre, is a Helen Merrill Playwriting Fellow, a Guggenheim Fellow, an Edward F. Albee Foundation Fellow, and was awarded the first-ever Marian Seldes/Garson Kanin Fellowship by the Theater Hall of Fame.

The cast includes Miranda Herbert Aston, Amy Bruce, Rutherford Cravens, Candice D'Meza, Greg Dean, Patricia Duran, Xzavien Hollins, Kevin Jones, Kevin Lusignolo, Karen Morey, Kyle Sturdivant and Lyndsay Sweeney.

Directed by Kyle Sturdivant. Scenic design is by Ryan McGettigan with lighting by Dustin Tannahill, costumes by Macy Perrone, sound by Chris Bakos and props by Lauren Davis. Tawny Tidwell stage manages.
