Review from naomi

All four of us found this to be an interesting, thought provoking theater experience with plenty of plot turns to discuss. Went to dinner at the Ethiopian restaurant, Red Sea, across the street so it was a wonderful night out in all.

“The best new play in many a season.” —The New York Observer
“Captivates an audience from start to finish.” —Chicago Free Press


Company One is proud to present the Boston premiere of Bruce Norris’s controversial play The Pain and the Itch, featuring Nancy E. Carroll. With a young daughter in serious need of attention and a ravenous creature possibly prowling the upstairs bedrooms, what begins as an average Thanksgiving for one privileged family unravels into an exposé of disastrous choices and less-than-altruistic motives. The Pain and the Itch is a scathing satire of the politics of class and race, a compelling, painfully human examination of denial and its consequences. Following sold out runs at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre and New York’s Playwright’s Horizons, Company One is proud to stage this highly anticipated Boston premiere.
