Title and Deed
Title and Deed, by American playwright Will Eno (known for his broadway play of 2 years ago, The Realistic Joneses, starring Toni Colette and Michael C. Hall). T&D has had very successful runs in New York and at the Edinburgh Fringe. It's one man's story of how he came here from his home country in search of some place that he can truly feel "at home". It's a dark, at times surreal comedy, as he compares the very odd traditions that he grew up with (we begin to realise that we don't recognise the country he's describing) to how we live, and also his misadventures as he tries to come to grips with his new life.
The N.Y. TImes critic: "...a haunting and often fiercely funny meditation on life as a state of permanent exile...gorgeously and inventively wrought, line by line."
The New Yorker: " (A) droll, tragicomic jewel."
