Reviews

"Astonishing in its impact. . . . One of the treasured nights in the theatre that can leave you both breathless with exhilaration and, depending on your sensitivity to meditations on the bleak and beautiful mysteries of human experience, in a puddle of tears . . . Thom Pain is at bottom a surreal meditation on the empty promises life makes, the way experience never lives up to the weird and awesome fact of being. But it is also, in its odd, bewitching beauty, an affirmation of life's worth." Charles Isherwood, The New York Times "Eno has emerged as one of the most original young playwrights on the scene. He is one of the few writers who can convert discomfort and outright agony into such pleasure." David Cote, TimeOut New York "It's hard to imagine more dazzling writing on any stage Eno is light, rhythmic and meticulous." London Daily Telegraph "Will Eno is an original, a maverick wordsmith whose weird, wry dramas gurgle with the grim humour and pain of life. Eno specialises in the connections of the unconnected, the apologetic murmurings of the disengaged, those who have suppressed their humanity to survive." Lyn Gardner, Guardian (London) "Bold, original, and most important of all, entertaining without sacrificing its artistic leanings, "Thom Pain" is the work of a writer finding his voice." Peter Thomas Ricci, Chicago Theatre Review
