What Is the Story of Title and Deed?
Title and Deed is the story of a nameless man who travels to an unknown country. With only a knapsack, a nondescript metal box and a stick in his possession, the man regales the audience with stories of his homeland, his lost love, the loneliness of travel and trying to feel at ease in a strange place. Using a Beckettian minimalist approach and clever turns of phrase, Title And Deed addresses the universal concepts of being lost, longing for family traditions, falling in love and losing loved ones.

Critics’ Reviews

Eno wrote ['Title and Deed'] for Lovett and, under the direction of Judy Hegarty Lovett (the actor’s wife), he brings an easygoing, conversational authenticity that holds you tight.

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News

The marvel of Eno's voice is how naturally it combines a carefully scripted lyricism with sly, poker-faced humor.

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Title and Deed Like?
Set in a sparse, abstract location, Title and Deed is a thought-provoking, 70-minute conversation with a nameless stranger. In this new play by Will Eno, Conor Lovett breaks the fourth wall and talks directly to the audience, sharing stories, making jokes and at times, asking for advice. Throughout the play, Lovett shares his insights as an outsider. Even though the audience isn’t quite sure what country he’s from, his feelings about being lost and alone in the world ring true.

Is Title and Deed Good For Kids?
Title and Deed contains several instances of adult language, and the play's existential musings on life and death are likely to fly right over young children’s heads. Unless your older teen is a Beckett fan, it’s best to leave the kids at home.
