Thom Pain

Thom Pain (based on nothing) by Will Eno
January 11-20, 2013
Open Eye Figure Theatre

Thom is someone you’ll like- if you can get to know him. Between bee stings, dead dogs, and love interests he holds nothing back. While trying to stay focused on the story he’s telling he’ll let nothing get in the way, except maybe a piece of lint, or the woman in the second row.

In Will Eno’s bitingly funny one-man show, Thom Pain searches through the wreckage of his life to uncover the remains of his childhood and meditates on the empty promises life makes and the way experience never lives up to the majesty of being alive.
