Lovett is currently appearing in the Gare St. Lazare Players Ireland production of Samuel Beckett's The End. Eno's play, which was written for Lovett, is a co-production between the Signature and Gare St. Lazare Players, where it premiered in summer 2011.
Judy Hegarty Lovett will again direct the production that will officially open May 20 for a run through June 3 at The Pershing Square Signature Center's Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre.
Here's how the play is billed: "A nameless traveler from a far off place searches for connection and solace in an unknown country in this funny and sad meditation on mortality, loneliness, innocence, home, family, love, funerals, words, and the world."
Eno's play Thom Pain (based on nothing) was a 2004 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Critics embraced his recent play Middletown, which debuted Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in 2010. His latest work The Realistic Joneses will debut at the Yale Repertory Theatre this spring. His other plays include The Flu Season, Tragedy: a tragedy and Oh, The Humanity and other exclamations.
