Thom Pain (based on nothing)

April 6-8, 2018 | Hub 14

He's 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 person in the second row.

Written by Will Eno

Directed and Designed by Hannah Jack

Assistant Directed by Brandon Gillespie

Featuring Owen Fawcett

Praise for Thom Pain

“This Theatre By Committee solo show staged is the best piece of theatre I’ve seen in a very long time.…Deftly navigating an insane roller coaster of topics and tones, Fawcett gives a performance so captivating I’ve yet to come down from its high nearly 12 hours later.”

-Kelly Bedard, MyEntertainmentWorld

“Fawcett gives a compelling performance as we follow Thom down the rabbit hole of his psyche. Entertaining and charming in an awkward, quirky sort of way, Thom teases and mocks, riding the edge of cruelty without descending into it as he tells these dark stories.”

-Cate McKim, life with more cowbell
