Will Eno’s The Open House is to receive its world premiere at The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center. The Signature Theatre production will be directed by Oliver Butler and run from February 11 through March 23, 2014. Opening night is set for March 3.
Pulitzer Prize finalist Eno’s new play is described (cryptically) as follows: "Playwrights have been trying to write Family Plays for a long time. And typically these plays try to answer endlessly complicated questions of blood and duty and inheritance and responsibility. They try to answer the question, 'Can things really change?' People have been trying nobly for years and years to have plays solve in two hours what hasn't been solved in many lifetimes. This has to stop. The Open House is an hour and 20 minutes, with no intermission."
Casting and the remainder of the creative team will be announced shortly.
