Title and Deed
One man’s circuitous journey finds universal resonance in this compelling new travelogue by Pulitzer finalist Will Eno (Broadway’s The Realistic Joneses). Jeff Award winner and star of Private Practice Michael Patrick Thornton takes center stage in a whimsical and soul-searching meditation on life, language and our perennial search for home.
1:30 p.m. Preshow Lecture by Gareth Higgins
Author, storyteller, movie critic and peacemaker Gareth Higgins will discuss being a world traveler in the unending search for home. Lecture attendees will receive a coupon for a free beverage from the theatre concessions stand.
Gareth Higgins was born in Belfast in 1975, grew up during the northern Ireland Troubles, and lives in North Carolina, where he was the founding director of the Wild Goose Festival and now works as a writer and storyteller. Movies (and a theatrical mother) made his imagination come to life, and he is a grateful inheritor of the gifts of queer theology, non-violent activism, and anabaptist patriotic skepticism. He writes and speaks about connection to the earth, cinema and dreaming, peace and making justice, the gift of fear, and how to take life seriously without believing your own propaganda.
3:00 p.m. Matinee Performance
