Returning to his Midwestern hometown after college, Daniel, a young, gay writer, takes a job at the local bookstore he knew as a child. After he and Linda, the Filipina bookstore owner, begin working together, they discover they share a dark connection that goes much deeper than a love of literature. A gripping and intimate new play explores the dark side of ordinary people, second chances, and the price of forgiveness.

REVIEWS 

"After All the Terrible Things I Do is a quietly evocative consideration of forgiveness" - Time Out Chicago, Read More 

"Pamatmat’s writing deftly and eloquently explores people grappling with things they regret, but can’t put right...a highly rewarding drama." - Chicago Critic, Read More 

"Smart, sensitive..." - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Read More 

“Pamatmat finds an intriguing new angle from which to dramatize a timely issue — the bullying of gay kids — and an absorbing, psychologically astute way to explore the corrosive nature of guilt… All in all, terrible things, whose title is drawn from a Frank O’Hara poem, confirms that Pamatmat warrants the copious attention being paid to him…” - Boston Globe, Read More 

“[I]n the way he plays with audience expectations, Pamatmat rather daringly confronts the theatergoer to examine his or her own notions of empathy… with a finale that is a sort of photo negative of the pat ending a lesser play (and playwright) might deliver. It takes the issue of bullying, particularly of gay youths, and uses it to delve into broader questions about trauma and guilt. The play is ultimately a success, and a pretty riveting one at that.” - WBUR, Read More 

“Searing… after all the terrible things I do invites you along for a leisurely walk among the marigolds and then, with a sudden twist of the fates, stops you in your tracks and slaps you right in the face.” - On Milwaukee, Read More
