2nd NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix
From Vineyard Theatre
Winner of the inaugural Horton Foote Award for Most Promising New Play of 2010, MIDDLETOWN is a deeply moving and funny new play by Will Eno — author of the Pulitzer Prize-finalist play THOM PAIN (based on nothing) — that explores the universe of a small American town. As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge (Linus Roache) and new arrival Mary Swanson (Heather Burns), the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and compelling ways. A powerful and poignant meditation on birth, death and points between, MIDDLETOWN is a remarkable new play from one of our finest young theatrical voices.
The incredible cast features Linus Roache (“RFK,” “Law & Order”), Heather Burns (“Miss Congeniality,” MARRIAGE OF BETTE AND BOO), Johanna Day (PROOF), Georgia Engel (“Mary Tyler Moore Show,” DROWSY CHAPERONE), Emmy-winner Michael Park (“As the World Turns,” THE BURNT PART BOYS) and David Garrison (Tony nominee for A DAY IN HOLLYWOOD…, “Married with Children,” TITANIC).
