 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.

 Reviews of the script:

"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, Read More

"Richly engaging and satisfyingly theatrical, with heart and humor. A modern-day equivalent to Thornton Wilder’s Our Town." - TheatreMania, Read More

"Utterly spellbinding! Four stars! Will Eno’s dark comic genius inspires all." - Time Out New York, Read More

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

"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,
