Oh, the Humanity and other good intentions

Will Eno

PaperBack (20 Jun 2008)

Includes: Behold the Coach, in a Blazer, Uninsured; Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rain; Enter the Spokeswoman, Gently; The Bully Composition; and Oh, the Humanity

Five short plays about being alive.

We’d like you to meet a bunch of people with something on their mind. There’s a coach with an awkward confession to make and a spokeswoman who doesn’t know what to say. This man and that woman want to fall in love, but they’re not quite sure how. Oh, and these people want to take your picture, so just act natural, ok? Witty, charming and playful, Oh, The Humanity exposes the terrible hope and hilarious uncertainty of our lives, through the eyes of one of New York’s hottest playwrights.

'Mr. Eno’s unmistakable voice — aggressively stylized, unendingly compassionate, flecked with weird, bleak humor — rings out with the same arresting originality in this hour-long evening of playfully profound theater.' – New York Times

'Eno is a supreme monologist, using a distinctive, edgy blend of non-sequiters and provisional statements to explore the fragility of our existence... There are a lot of words, but they are always exquisitely chosen' – Guardian

'Horrifyingly insightful writing... has that rare theatrical gift of perfect balance in all areas.' starstarstarstarstar – A Younger Theatre
