"Astonishing in its in its impact...It's one of those treasured nights in the theatre---treasured nights anywhere, for that matter---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. Also, in stiches, here and there...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...a small masterpiece." --- The New York Times
