College of Charleston's only student-run theater organization, Center Stage, will be performing Thom Pain, a play based on well, nothing.

Here's a bit about the play that was penned by Will Eno:

He's just like you, except worse. He is trying to save his life, to save your life, in that order. In his quest for salvation, he'll stop at nothing, be distracted by nothing, except maybe a piece of lint, or the woman in the second row. A finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, this show takes the audience on a journey through the mind of a man who commands a room with a sense of humility, hate, and love; all at once.

The production will run from Wednesday, October 14 through Saturday, October 17. Admission is free to all students and faculty and will be $8 cash at the door for all other attendees.

All shows will begin at 8 p.m. sharp in theatre 220 on the 2nd floor of the Simons Center for the Arts on campus.
