This modern take on Thornton Wilder's classic comedy-drama Our Town sets out on a journey -- to somewhere in the middle -- in search of the meaning of life. San francisco's Custom Made Theatre presents Middletown, Pulitzer Prize finalist Will Eno's wry, bittersweet 2010 play that zooms in on the everyday existences of the citizens of Middletown and holds a microscope to small-town American living. At the heart of this sweet and disturbing exploration, Eno (who also wrote the critically acclaimed The Realistic Joneses) highlights our tender struggle for human connection and how we're all looking for a little meaning in this mystery we call life. Along the way, this winner of the Horton Foote Prize for Outstanding New American Play reveals universal themes of love, birth, death, loneliness, elation, forgiveness, disappointment and redemption.
