GLAS in Geneva has done it again with Will Eno’s Title and Deed performed by Conor Lovett. Having seen Lovett undertake Molloy, also courtesy of GLAS, I’m not surprised that it inspired Eno to write this for him.
Lovett is a master of that space inside us where the belly-laugh and the heart-weep meet in their uneasy liason. Eno has created the perfect monologue for Lovett to practise his craft, destabilising the audience, exploiting that churning place between stomach and heart where our emotions lurch uncertainly one way and then the other.
I really can’t gush enough about it. We were privileged to see it on its way to the Edinburgh Festival where it’s bound to be a highlight. Ticket bookings here.
