ABOUT THE RESIDENT COMPANIES

Head Trick Theatre is a performing group based in Providence, RI that puts on innovative productions of classic plays with a focus on the importance of liveness. Recent works in residence at AS220 include God of Vengeance, Sholem Asch’s controversial drama about a good Jewish daughter who falls in love with a prostitute employed by her father, and Gabriel, George Sand’s feminist parable performed by a cast of female and non-binary actors. Outdoor summer productions include The Knight of the Burning Pestle (2017) and The Revenger’s Tragedy (2016).

We are dedicated to providing actors, directors, designers, and technicians an opportunity to practice their craft in a professional environment. We make theatre because we feel compelled to do so.
