by Will Eno


Recommended by NT Bookseller Michael:

A man walks on stage and addresses the audience. He may have a story to tell, he may not; he's not quite sure. There may be a raffle (so keep hold of your ticket) but then again, there probably won't be. A masterpiece of monologue drama, Eno hilariously subverts and frustrates our expectations of storytelling and theatre, whilst also offering an unexpectedly poignant meditation on searching for meaning in life.
