This is an oddly engaging piece of theatre by American playwright Will Eno. It starts with a deceptively simple, straightforward and familiar theatrical premise. A solitary character on a big, black stage, bare but for a single table and a single chair, tells us a story. Thom is a man we know nothing about. Nothing about the suit he wears, the stage he inhabits or the story he tells locates in him time, space, or a specific social milieu.
