Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“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. His work is inventive, disciplined and, at the same time, wild and evocative. His ear is splendid and his mind is agile.” — Edward Albee
