Multi award-winning Toby Schmitz is one of Australia's finest actors, giving revelatory performances on almost every stage in the country. Chameleon-like, Schmitz is a master of the tragic and the comic, which is exactly why it makes perfect sense for him to take on Will Eno's acclaimed one-man show. In front of 9 cameras streaming globally, one of our acting powerhouses steps into this towering play.
Both a 'surreal meditation on the empty promises life makes' and 'an affirmation of life's worth', Thom Pain (based on nothing) landed Drama Desk Award-winner Will Eno a Pulitzer Prize nomination. Described as "one of the best monologues I've ever seen" by The Guardian and "a small masterpiece" by The New York Times, this one-man tour de force takes us into the mind of a man desperately searching for some meaning.
Live, intimate and often electrifying, this is what theatre is all about.
