OVERVIEW

Directed by OBIE Award winner, Oliver Butler, the play concerns the life of a tragic and funny character named Thom, who has been described as, “just like you, except worse. He is trying to save his life, to save your life—in that order. In his quest for salvation, he'll stop at nothing, be distracted by nothing, except maybe a piece of lint, or the woman in the second row.”

“Mr. Eno might be called a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation ... To sum up the more or less indescribable: Thom Pain is at bottom a surreal meditation on the empty promises life makes, the way experience never lives up to the weird and awesome fact of being. But it is also, in its odd, bewitching beauty, an affirmation of life's worth.” - The New York Times
