Nightfall Theatrics Presents the Return of TITLE AND DEED

Nightfall Theatrics Presents the Return of TITLE AND DEED

Nightfall Theatrics proudly announces the return engagement of Will Eno's TITLE AND DEED as part of the Tarragon Workspace series, running September 19 to October 8.

Stewart Arnott and Christopher Stanton reunite to remount their acclaimed Canadian premiere of TITLE AND DEED, which they first produced for an all-too brief run at Artscape Youngplace in November 2015, following their earlier SummerWorks success with another Eno play, Tragedy: a tragedy.

TITLE AND DEED is a haunting and often fiercely funny meditation on life as a state of permanent exile. An unnamed man has recently arrived here, from an unnamed place - a homeland somehow familiar, yet decidedly not. He is a refugee. But what is he fleeing? And what is he hoping to find, now that he's landed . . . here?

A philosophical wordsmith, American playwright Will Eno (Wakey, Wakey, The Realistic Joneses, The Open House, Middletown) burst onto the scene in 2004 with The Flu Season which received the Oppenheimer Award for best debut production in New York by an American playwright. He is a Helen Merrill Playwriting Fellow, a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, an Edward F. Albee Foundation Fellow, and he just completed the Residency Five program at the Signature Theatre Company in New York. Thom Pain (based on nothing), a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama, has been produced in the United States, Brazil, Italy, Germany, France, Norway, Denmark, Israel, Mexico and Canada.

Stewart Arnott has been a director and performer for 40 years. He directed the award-winning production of Will Eno's Tragedy: a tragedy for the 2014 SummerWorks Festival. The same season he directed the premiere production of Title and Deed, he directed the hit play Seminar starring Tom McCamus at the Royal MTC and the Panasonic Theatre (Mirvish Productions). Other directing credits include productions for YPT, Prairie Theatre Exchange, GCTC, and Theatre Aquarius. Upcoming, Stewart will direct the premiere of Paula Wing's Risky Phil on the mainstage at Young People's Theatre.

Christopher Stanton is a performer, director, writer, Sound Designer, and composer. He has been nominated for 13 Dora Mavor Moore awards across disciplines, winning Outstanding Direction in 2017 (Pomona) and Outstanding Performance in 2011 (The New Electric Ballroom). His performance work has taken him across Canada, and to several international festivals. Christopher is the Artistic Producer of award-winning performance company ARC.

"What do you do when a quiet, shy man talks with you about missing home? When he's Christopher Stanton, you listen." - Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine
