Title:Point’s “Everything of Any Value”, plus Sarah Reiter @ 95 Empire Black Box
Aug 29 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Sarah Reiter returns to Providence, doing a solo performance to welcome…

Title:Point Productions’ newest, original play, Everything of Any Value.

Title:Point presents a new, original work of unimaginable strength and overwhelming cowardice.

Written by Theresa Buchheister (also dir.), Ryan William Downey, Scott Ries, Spencer Campbell, and Catrin Lloyd-Bollard, and developed by Buchheister, Downey, Ries, Campbell, Lloyd-Bollard, E. James Ford, Joey LePage, and Blake Bolan.

Eight figures stopping/starting in the midst of a great transition. Meeting in a triangle square, psychically obeying an avalanche of gymnasts and tightrope walking daredevils. Filling the lives of lives that are full. A single point of obsession. Seven slow deaths.

Title:Point has been making theatre and events in New York since 2006, beginning with a residency with Incubator Arts in the Ontological Theatre in St. Mark’s Church. Since then, we have continued to expand the universe in which all of our projects exist, working in theatres, UHAULs, warehouses, bookstores, bars, and now, in permanent residence in The Silent Barn (, a DIY punk venue/artist workspace/residence in Bushwick.
Since moving into The Silent Barn in 2013, Title:Point has mounted 3 fully produced theatrical runs, 5 Gestating Babies (curated nights of performance), several events/themed parties and installations, and film screenings with hundreds of local and nonlocal artists.

Everything of Any Value began as a toe dip into Futurist texts, and turned into a collaborative writing process, riffing on the structures and themes of the Futurists, and turning into something equally strange, but far less fascist.
