Event description

Description

Kailua Onstage Arts continues its inaugural season with the Hawaii Premiere of Title and Deed by Will Eno, performed by Kevin Keaveney and directed by Will Ha'o. This highly acclaimed solo play, which appeared on both The N.Y. Times and The New Yorker magazine’s Top Ten Plays of 2012, is a haunting and often fiercely funny meditation on life as a state of permanent exile.

Behold the newest nobody of the funniest century yet. Listen closely or drift off uncontrollably, as he speaks to you directly about the notion of home, about the notion of the world. All of it delivered with the authority that is the special province of the unsure and the un-homed, which is a word he made up accidentally. The running time, if he doesn't die or think of anything else, is roughly one hour. Title and Deed is a provocative new work by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Horton Foote Prize winner Will Eno, whom The New York Times called "a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation."

The production is performed by Kevin Keaveney and directed by Will Ha'o and runs from November 30th through Dec. 9, at Skeleton Key Hawaii, 171-A Hamakua Dr., in Kailua. The running time is 75 minutes.


Title and Deed has generated universal critical acclaim:

"...Daring within its masquerade of the mundane, spectacular within its minimalism, and hilarious within its display of po-faced bewilderment. It is a clown play that capers at the edge of the abyss ...... You can’t see the ideas coming in “Title and Deed.” When they arrive—tiptoeing in with a quiet yet startling energy—you don’t quite know how they got there."

"Both the humor and the rapture come from the same source: a keen, obsessive attention to language that combines fascination with frustration at words’ faltering ability to convey the wonder, strangeness and sadness of experience." - The New York Times

"Pensive, lyrical, deeply funny and profoundly sad." - Variety
