Will Eno’s “TRAGEDY: a tragedy” is actually a comedy, if an apocalyptic comedy,” written by an exciting contemporary playwright and directed by Obie Award-winner Les Waters. “I like going to rehearsals. I also like stopping going to rehearsals. I think I can be helpful to the process with a good mix of presence and absence,” said Eno about his hard work preparing for the national premiere. The New York Times called Eno “a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation” after a successful two-year run of his off-Broadway hit “Thom Pain (based on nothing).” Presented on the intimate Thrust Stage of Berkeley Rep, TRAGEDY begins perviews on March 14 and closes April 13. For those who like to wallow in TRAGEDY, Berkeley Rep offers 15 special events during the run to enhance their tragicomic experience: Page to Stage on March 7 at 7; Target ® Teen Night March 14 at 6:30; Opening night festivities on March 19; Berkeley Rep’s book club on April 4 at 6:30; Free 30-minute docent presentations about the show on March 18, 20, 25, 27, April 1, 3, 8, and 10 at 7, and Post-play discussions on March 20, 28 and April 1.
