Blackout Creator To Turn Will Eno’s Thom Pain into Immersive One-Man Show

Immersive theater is always evolving and changing, and guests who attend feel like they’re part of a show filled with actors and elaborate sets. If there’s one person who knows a thing or two about the immersive theater scene, it’s Josh Randall. He’s the co-creator of Blackout, an immersive horror experience that raised the bar on the traditional haunted houses. Starting this month, he will be staging a limited-run, one-man show of Will Eno’s Thom Pain (based on nothing).

Will Eno’s Thom Pain (based on nothing) is a one-man show that has been performed all around the U.S. and the world since 2005, and the play was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Price for Drama. Randall’s Ghost Manor Productions is turning the show into an immersive show set in a custom-built theater in the performer’s actual South Los Angeles home. It’s a very intimate experience with only ten audience members at a time, and the revival takes away the standard of live theater, with the guests being up close to the experience.
