Middletown


  • Lenfest Center for the Arts 615 West 129th Street New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

Written by Will Eno

Directed by Manoel Felciano

Middletown's quirky denizens are balanced between a lost history and an uncertain future - living atop the bones of those who were there first, and beneath impossibly distant stars. While navigating the daily ordinariness of fixing the sink, visiting the library or planting a tree, the inhabitants of Middletown haltingly wrestle with the gap between who they are and who they are assumed to be. As they fumble and grasp to reach beyond themselves, they collide with — and miss — each other, in ways both poignant and funny.
