Michael C. Hall stars in a monologue play that follows a man who desperately, and hilariously, tries to save his own life - or at least make it into something worth dying for.

From the producers: Called “a small masterpiece” by The New York Times and “one of the best monologues I’ve ever seen” by The Guardian, this surreal and very real one-man show follows Thom Pain as he desperately, and hilariously, tries to save his own life…or at least make it into something worth dying for.
Author Will Eno's plays include "Title and Deed," "Wakey, Wakey," "The Realistic Joneses," which was produced on Broadway in 2014, and "The Open House," which played Off-Broadway's Signature Theatre in 2014 and won the Obie Award for Playwriting. After debuting in London, "Thom Pain (based on nothing)" premiered Off-Broadway in 2005 and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. The play has been translated into over a dozen languages, and since 2005 has been produced regularly around the U.S. and the world.
Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch," "The Realistic Joneses," Showtime's "Dexter") stars in the Signature Theatre revival. The Debate Society's Oliver Butler ("The Amateurs") directs.
What's the Signature Theatre? Signature is a highly-regarded Off-Broadway company founded in 1991. Signature focused each of its first 20 seasons on the work of a single playwright - Sam Shepard, Romulus Linney, Horton Foote, Lanford Wilson, August Wilson, etc. With the opening of the spectacular new Signature Center just west of Times Square, the company has expanded its annual offerings. Tickets, highly subsidized since 2005 by the company's Signature Ticket Initiative, are only $30. More here.
