Title and Deed
Performed by Steven Ray.
A monologue by Will Eno.
‘SOME PEOPLE TRAVEL ONLY TO LOOK, WHILE OTHERS COME TO SEE.’ – Tenzing Norgay to Edmund Hillary on the slopes of Everest…
Title and Deed is a provocative, engaging play 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.
Title and Deed is a work that stirs the heart and asks the audience to look within – to listen closely or drift off uncontrollably as he speaks directly about the notion of home and the notion of the world; whatever that means to each of us.
Behold the newest nobody of the funniest century yet. He’ll speak to you directly about the notion of home, the world, delivered with the authority that is the special province of the unsure and the un-homed, a word he made up accidentally, all in roughly one hour!
