Thom Pain (based on nothing)

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Aug. 6 2016

The Midnight Company brings back an old, odd favorite in Thom Pain (based on nothing). Will Eno's one-man show is about nothing, as promised, but our lives are accumulations of meaningless moments that somehow congeal into a full meal — sort of like how lasagna left in the fridge few days tastes richer and fuller than when eaten right out of the oven. Joe Hanrahan stars as the man who has known only suffering, from childhood bee stings to the agonies wrought by the combination of male and female. Thom Pain (based on nothing) is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (July 22 to August 6) at Herbie's Vintage 72 (405 North Euclid Avenue; www.midnightcompany.com). Tickets are $15.
