Tragedy: A Tragedy

13 June, 2017

by Will Eno
arranged by Gary Bird

The absurdity of the local news is here wed to the genre of Absurdism, and the result is a charming display of witty satire in the face of Armageddon.

Will Eno's Beckettian play satirizes the conventions of TV news. Not only does Eno's dead-on parody of newsy foolishness recall the fake news so popular of late, but the fuzzy chaos that unfolds touches on recent tragic events and how they have been handled by the media. And in the end, we realize that real life is absurd too.
