thompain2.jpgAs part of their Playwrights & Performers series, the Drama Book Shop plays host to the happy couple behind Thom Pain (based on nothing), playwright Will Eno and actor James Urbaniak.

Now extended through Labor Day, Thom Pain (based on nothing) has won over a host of critics and took top honors at 2004 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. With the extended run Gothamist hopes to catch a performance soon. But we have such a fondness for James Urbaniak we’d recommend tonight’s FREE event just to check him out. He’s been on our radar since he appeared as Simon Grim in Hal Hartley’s Henry Fool. As for Brookyn-based Eno, the New York Times has referred to him as being “a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation.”

This evening’s discussion is moderated by David Finkle of Theatermania and The Village Voice. It begins at 6pm at Drama Book Shop, 250 West 40th St. It's free but RSVP is recommended to (212) 944-0595 or email:
