An encore of the one-man piece that won raves from Austin critics and audiences in 2007. The play the New York Times called "astonishing in its impact" returns in an award-winning performance by HPT Artistic Director Ken Webster.
The Austin Critics' Table named Ken Webster Outstanding Lead Actor for his 2007 performance in this role, and the show was nominated for Outstanding Production. The Austin Chronicle called Webster's performance "sensational . . . a certain economy of motion that I consistently see in great actors, wherein every step, smile, and hand gesture is made with a purpose."
Thom Pain is hilarious, curious, heartbreaking, astonishing. The New York Times called playwright Will Eno "a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation."
The show runs at 8:00 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, July 11 - August 3, 2013. Every Thursday is Pay What You Can Night. For the first three weeks (July 11-27) Friday and Saturday tickets are $20 ($18 for students, seniors, military, and Austin Creative Alliance members). For the final weekend (August 1-3) tickets are $22 ($20 for students, seniors, military, and Austin Creative Alliance members). Purchase tickets online or call 479-PLAY (7529) for reservations.
