Thom Pain (based on nothing)

thom pain (based on nothing) at Burbage Theatre Company in Pawtucket, RI

One man, one act, one hour (give or take). Will Eno’s 2005 play Thom Pain (based on nothing) starts with a funny gag, then waffles quite a bit, and by the end you’re not sure how you felt, only that you might have felt something. Maybe. It’s a tricky show to stage, mostly because the character isn’t necessarily a guy that you want to hear talking at you for more than a few minutes. The skinny tie, the digressions with digressions, the repeated mentions of a raffle that will never happen — Jeff Church’s character is a little too self-conscious to make any sense, although that might also be the point. Church and director Vince Petronio clearly gave this one a lot of thought, though there’s not a ton of payoff for the audience.
