A deeply moving and funny play exploring the universe of a small American town.

As a friendship develops between long-time resident John Dodge and new arrival Mary Swanson, the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points in between.

Winner of the 2020 Horton Foote Award for Most Promising New Play, Middletown premiered in New York City at The Vineyard Theatre the same year.
