“Thom Pain is brainy, stream of consciousness material that’s almost impossible to pull off and it’s the kind of risky theatre that Western Theatre conspiracy (WTC) revels in. Think back to the searing Blue/Orange and Tim Carlson’s Omniscience of seasons past. If you want to be shaken up, WTC is for you.”  – Jo Ledingham, Vancouver Courier

“Played with bilious brilliance by Scott Bellis.” Jerry Wasserman, The Province
