    "Though the man telling the jokes is sitting down (he's in a wheelchair), dying is a stand-up routine in this glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play by Will Eno,” states The New York Times. From the playwright of Thom Pain (based on nothing) comes this welcome work of theatre, embodied here by Ken Webster and Rebecca Robinson for Hyde Park Theatre, and so you know that's already like five good reasons to attend. And here's our full review of the show.

    Yankee Tavern

    Just when you thought you'd heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a guy walks into a bar and orders two beers – one for himself and one for his absent buddy – and a young couple find themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all.
