The Dramateurs Inc. at the Barn Playhouse will present the Will Eno play Middletown in a Reader’s theater format Friday, October 19 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, October 21 at 7:00 pm at the theater, located at 1700 Christopher Lane in Jeffersonville, PA.
Featuring a wide array of characters, Middletown is a deeply moving and funny new play exploring the universe of a small American town. As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge and new arrival Mary Swanson, the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points beyond.
