By Will Eno

Population: stable. Elevation: same.  The main street is called Main Street. Average as average can be.  Or is it? Certainly not your traditional Our Town, but you may just recognize something of yourself in playwright Will Eno’s flippant, yet, poignant take on simple townsfolk battling life’s absurdities in their effort to become “normal” human beings.
