Third Rail Repertory Theatre Presents MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno
by BWW News Desk - Sep 17, 2014

Third Rail opens our season with a play we have been dying to produce since it was the hit of Portland Center Stage's 2009 JAW Festival, MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno.

MIDDLETOWN is a quizzical fable about life in all its sweetness and pain, joy and wonder, beginnings and endings. (more...)
