Written and performed by Brendan George
Conceived and directed by Peter Charney
Meet Milo, a nervous young man who shares the stage with an urn. But things aren’t as dark as they seem.
Milo is trying to give a eulogy for his friend Roman, but the ceremony proves unexpectedly difficult, and attendees are voluntarily enlisted to help him complete the memorial. Together, they celebrate life, confront death, and make a promise of their own.
After a sold-out run in last year's East to Edinburgh festival and a critically-acclaimed world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, A Eulogy for Roman returns to New York City for its Off Broadway debut.
Through The Tollbooth Co. produces new works that transport audiences to vibrant, carefully constructed worlds. We seek to awaken, challenge, and inspire by tapping into the imagination and uniting viewers through a shared experience.
