Theater of Thought produces site-specific theater. Last year I decided that I wanted to produce a show using Providence as the site. I researched what was interesting about Providence and came up with HP Lovecraft. Thus was born, Executor.
The audience will buy a ticket for the show online. The week of the show, they will get a call from a law office setting up an appointment for their chosen day. They will meet their lawyer at the given time and place. The lawyer will then explain to them that an old man has died and left no surviving relatives. it is up to them to Execute his final wishes.
This is not a tour, as the audience has no guide. It is not a show, as there is no theater. It is not a scavenger hunt, as there IS a story. It is what the audience makes it.
For the first time, Theater of Thought is seeking fellow producers. This is a huge undertaking and a large part of the concept is that we involve everyone in this show. The audience is the show, actually. So we are involving all of you from the beginning. Help us make this show great and we will see you there, or you will see us...if you can find us before we find you.
Executor is going to create steady work for local artists of different ilk. It will collaborate with and support local businesses. It will draw tourism to Providence.

Executor will run from Jun 18 - August 28.
It will return to Providence every summer.
