Rating
Will Eno is one of the finest younger playwrights I have come across in a number of years. His work is inventive, disciplined and, at the same time, wild and evocative. His ear is splendid and his mind is agile. Edward Albee An original, a maverick wordsmith whose weird, wry dramas gurgle with the grim humor and pain of life. Eno specializes in the connections of the unconnected, the apologetic murmurings of the disengaged. "Guardian" Winner of the 2004 Oppenheimer Award for best New York debut by an American playwright, "The Flu Season" is a reluctant love story, in spite of itself. Set in a hospital and a theater, it is a play that revels in ambivalence and derives a flailing energy from its doubts whether a love story is ever really a love story. Will Eno has been called a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation "(New York Times)"he is a playwright with an extraordinary voice and a singular theatrical vision. Also included in this volume are "Tragedy: A Tragedy" and "Intermission." Will Eno is the author of" Thom Pain (based on nothing)," which ran for a year Off-Broadway and was a 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist. Other works include "Oh, the Humanity and other good intentions, The Flu Season, Tragedy: a tragedy," and "Intermission.""

Reviews

"The Flu Season is stingingly funny and really rather beautiful... Will Eno is an original, a maverick wordsmith whose weird, wry dramas gurgle with the grim humor and pain of life. Eno specializes in the connections of the unconnected, the apologetic murmurings of the disengaged, those who have suppressed their humanity to survive." - Guardian (London) "Tragedy takes the subversive potential of comedy extremes, undermining not only the trustworthiness of authority figures but also the notion that words can convey meaning at all. That Eno does this with remarkable wit and astonishing facility is a source of considerable hilarity." - San Francisco Chronicle "Will Eno is one of the finest younger playwrights I have come across in a number of years.
