Written by Will Eno
Directed by Matt Gray
Starring Steven Walters
Second Thought Theatre is excited to open their 7th season with __Thom Pain (Based on Nothing) __by Will Eno. Called the “Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation” by the New York Times, Eno explores the beautiful, and sometimes bleak, mysteries and wonders of the human condition in this hilarious and poignant one man show.
The season opener will star STT Co-Artistic Director Steven Walters in the title role and will be directed by Dallas Theater Center Resident Company Member Matthew Gray.
“Matt and Steven have a long history of exciting artistic collaborations dating back to the earliest days of Second Thought Theatre’s inception to various productions at Classical Acting Company and the Dallas Theater Center. Second Thought is excited to bring these two artists back together again,” says Second Thought Theatre Co-Artistic Director Chris LaBove.
Most recently, Gray directed Walters in the Dallas Theatre Center’s wildly successful production of Neil LaBute’s Beauty Plays.
“This piece is a great vehicle for Steven,” says Director Matt Gray. “It’s hilarious, painful, and tragic…an intellectual and emotional assault that asks audiences to take a closer look at the simple beauty and mystery of what it means to be a human being,” says Director Matthew Gray.
