Additional Info

"Behold the newest nobody of the funniest century yet. He's almost Christ-like, from a distance, in terms of height and weight. Listen closely or drift off uncontrollably, as he speaks to you directly about the notion of home, about the notion of the world. All of it delivered with the authority that is the special province of the unsure and the un-homed, which is a word he made up accidentally. The running time, if he doesn't die or think of anything else, is roughly one hour. Title and Deed is a provocative new work by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Horton Foote Prize winner Will Eno, whom The New York Times called "a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation.""
