This season, The Tin Ceiling has brought you zombie clowns, roguish kings, evil magicians, British humor, buckets of blood, and sword fights galore. Now, to cap off our amazing 2006 season, we bring you something completely different.

A little sadness.

The Tin Ceiling Theatre Company presents "The Flu Season".

Written by Will Eno. Directed by Andrew Byrd.

Continuing The Tin Ceiling's critically acclaimed 2006 season comes its next show, the 2004 Oppenheimer Award winning play for Best New York Debut "The Flu Season" by Pulitzer-prize nominated author Will Eno.

The Guardian describes the play thusly: "a love story goes bad (really bad), a play gets written in painful fits and starts, snow falls, it turns to slush. Maybe spring arrives. This is a play to remind us why sunsets make us sad, how nostalgia is like fog and why we live our lives as though we are in mourning for them. "The Flu Season" is stingingly funny and really rather beautiful. Eno specializes in the connections of the unconnected, the apologetic murmurings of the disengaged, those who have suppressed their humanity to survive. It is vicious stuff, written in a language so deceptively innocent, so full of platitudes, that you don't realize it has cut you deep until you feel the warm seep of bloody despair."

Come join us for the final show of this season, a show that will break your heart. Just in time for the holidays.
