'Life's a gift? Quick. Exchange it.'


That's the headline for Charles Isherwood's rapturous New York Times review of Will Eno's new play, "Thom Pain (based on nothing)," starring James Urbaniak (above), which just opened last Tuesday in New York.

From the play:

    When did your childhood end?

    How badly did you get hurt, when you did, when you were this little, when you were this wee little hurtable thing, nothing but big eyes, a heart, a few hundred words?

    Isn't it wonderful how we never recover?


    It's sad, isn't it?

    The dead horse of a life we beat, all the wilder, all the harder the deader it gets.

    On the other hand, there are some nice shops in the area.


    I know this isn't much, but let it be enough.


"Thom Pain" runs through April 3 at the DR2 Theater, 103 East 15th Street.
