    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.  This luminous production features the cast of the original Shaw production, including leading festival stars Benedict Campbell, Moya O’Connell, Corrine Koslo, Gray Powell, and Jeff Meadows, and is led by one of Vancouver’s leading directors, Meg Roe.

    Abracadabra! Some theatre works on you as if by magic… O'Connell and Powell lead a textured 12-person cast that really nails the Eno style… - The Globe and Mail ★★★★
    So please stop reading this and book a ticket. I’ll keep going because that’s what the man pays me for, and also because getting to write about theatre this amazing (however imperfect the critical exercise) is why I’m in this game. - The Toronto Star ★★★★
    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
    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 small town life that is familiar but with a tilt to the surreal. - Chicago Sun Times
