TITLE AND DEED by Will Eno
A newly arrived immigrant brings only a bag and a couple of his belongings. He is the newest nobody of the funniest century yet. He's almost Christ-like, from a distance, in terms of height and weight. Listen closely or drift off uncontrollably, as he speaks about the notion of home, about the notion of the world and the absurdity of our existence. All of it delivered with the authority that is the special province of the unsure and the un-homed (which is a word he made up accidentally). The running time, if he doesn't die or think of anything else, is roughly one hour.
Title and Deed is a provocative new work by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Horton Foote Prize winner Will Eno, whom The New York Times called "a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation. Mark Pickell directs mutliple B. Iden Payne Award and Austin Critics Table award winning actor Jason Phelps as a hapless traveller in this smart and funny meditation on meaning of life, the end of it, and what it means to call someplace home.
Running Time: 1 hour 15 minutes with no intermission.
