A deeply moving and funny new play about 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. Seasoned director and teacher Mike Levin states: Eno is one of the greatest contemporary playwrights out there. He is funny, quirky, and able to write what people are thinking but not necessarily saying. This is one of the funniest, most beautiful scripts FALA has ever done that will stay with the audience long after the show. It captures both, death and the life in between those events. Were staging the play immersively, so the audience will be inside the production."
Everyday life in Middletown, is just like the everyday life of everyone else. However, this play dives deep into the underlying reasons as to why we live as we do, day by day. Author Will Eno is idiosyncratic in his quirky, poetic writing, painting a world so real and unreal, one will walk away questioning everything they thought to be true.
Hailed by audiences and critics as one of the most intriguing, comedic, and human plays, Middletown is a must see. It will have audience members laughing, crying, and questioning like no other production Flagstaff has seen.
