About the Author

Will Eno lives in Brooklyn. He is the recent recipient of a Residency 5 Fellowship at the Signature Theatre, where his play Title and Deed premiered in May 2012. His play The Realistic Joneses had its world premiere at the Yale Repertory Theater, in April 2012. His play Middletown was a winner of the Horton Foote Award and was produced at the Vineyard Theater in New York and Steppenwolf in Chicago. His play Thom Pain (based on nothing), played at the Edinburgh Festival, the Soho Theatre in London, the DR2 in New York, and in translation around the world. It was also a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and has been translated into many Romance languages and several Slavic ones. His other plays include Tragedy: a tragedy and The Flu Season. In 2012 Eno was a joint recipient of the PEN award for an American Playwright in Mid-Career. Praise for Will Eno's writing: "Mr. Eno's voice is so assuredly his own, simultaneously delicate and audacious in its measurements of poetry, philosophy and Monty Pythonesque silliness" - New York Times "He strikes me as being the real thing, a real playwright. He takes every chance. And Will keeps the voice his own: he has an awareness of the human condition I wish more people his age had." - Edward Albee
