Edinburgh Fringe winner, 2014
Eno is flavour of the month on the fringe theatre scene after repeatedly successful offerings, of which Title and Deed is the latest. This one-man show premiered at the Edinburgh Festival last year to rave reviews, which hailed both the writing and the masterful performance by Conor Lovett, who won The Stage Award for Acting Excellence.
Connor Lovett, actor
Lovett continues in the role of ‘Man’ for The Print Room transfer, and we couldn’t be happier. It gives us a chance to witness the talents of an actor who inspired the playwright himself to begin work on Title and Deed. This kind of collaboration is very exciting, and it seems fitting that the show sees Eno’s return to The Print Room after the thoroughly brilliant Thom Pain: Based on Nothing in 2012. It will feel like home turf for Eno’s work, and we look forward to the results of these well-established creative relationships.
Title and Deed: play that the audience are part of
So what exactly is the play about? Well, that’s part of the mystery. And you may not be any the wiser at the end of this 70-minute monologue. ‘Man’, at the heart of the piece, is something of an everyman, and as Eno explains: ‘the total effect and meaning of a play probably always has to include the audience's private responses and conjurings’. Surely he’s right – and we're intrigued by the production's readiness to respond to and be aware of its audience. It might be a ‘devastating monologue’, but the poetic cadence and arresting originality of Eno's language also makes it an uplifting experience.
