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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
