Show Synopsis:

Through the highs, the lows, and everything in-between, MIDDLETOWN is the ride of your life. Follow the story of two couples — Peg and Tom, and Dotty and Don — as they endure the rollercoaster of life together in this exhilarating and universal depiction of love, life and friendship.

As the New Hope Free Press describes, “Like Love Letters, the ‘play’s the thing,’ as Shakespeare might say. The show has four podiums downstage where the actors stand with scripts before them. … For all intents and purposes, this is just the actor telling you their stories with no blocking. This only works if the stories are worth telling and the actors are good enough to tell them. And the answer is a resounding YES!”

Playwright Dan Clancy's description:

"I wanted to tell a relatable every person’s story, in a direct and straight forward manner, where human emotions are the bells and whistles. I wanted the words to speak for themselves." - Dan Clancy

Director’s statement:

"As Harold Clurman famously said - Make’em laugh and when their mouths are open, pour in the medicine. MIDDLETOWN swept me up in the story of two wonderful couples and before I knew it, our lives were connected." - Seth Greenleaf
