Title and Deed
by Capital T Theatre

Aug. 24 - Sep. 16
Thursdays-Saturdays

Jason Phelps (via Jason Phelps)A newly arrived immigrant brings only a bag and a couple of his belongings. He looks a lot like us and he talks a lot like us, but he is foreign to our land. He is the newest nobody of the funniest century yet. He's almost Christ-like, from a distance, in terms of height and weight. Listen closely or drift off uncontrollably, as he speaks about the notion of home, about the notion of the world and the absurdity of our existence. 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 (THOM PAINE: Based on Nothing), whom The New York Times called "a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation. Mark Pickell directs mutliple B. Iden Payne Award and Austin Critics Table award winning actor Jason Phelps in this smart and funny meditation on life and what it means to us to find a place called home.
