Middletown
7:30 p.m. (Sunday at 2 p.m.)
Meramec Theatre
Middletown is a deeply moving and funny new play exploring the universe of a small American town. Featuring characters that are as interesting as they are introspective, Middletown comes to life as a microcosm of the American Dream. 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 numerous points between. Written by Will Eno, Middletown has been called Waiting for Godot meets Our Town; taking the existential philosophies discussing the meaning of life and placing it in a world not unlike our own.
Admission is free. Sunday performance will be interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing.
