News   Irish Actor Conor Lovett Will Appear in Will Eno's Title and Deed at NYC's Signature
 
Conor Lovett will repeat his work in the U.S. premiere of Middletown playwright Will Eno's Title and Deed, a new solo play about a mysterious traveler, which will begin Off-Broadway May 8 at the Signature Theatre Company's home on West 42nd Street.

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."

Title and Deed has scenic design by Tony Award winner Christine Jones (Spring Awakening), costume design by Andrea Lauer and lighting design by Ben Stanton.

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. Single tickets go on sale April 3. For tickets call (212) 244-7529 or visit signaturetheatre.org.
