Trap Door Announces New Season

Trap Door Announces New Season

The Trap Door was founded with a commitment to seeking out challenging yet obscure works and bringing them to life. Recently, the company was named by the Chicago Reader as one of the Best Off Loop Theaters of 2017.

Incorporated in March of 1994, Trap Door Theatre took their three-year tradition of touring European Theatres and Festivals and transferred it to Chicago's world-renowned Off-Loop Theatre scene. Residing in its permanent home, a 60-seat, 900 square foot converted performance space in Bucktown, Trap Door has presented over seventy productions. Now on the cusp of their 15th season, this groundbreaking group continues to win the praise of critics and patrons catapulting a whirlwind of activity, keeping the doors open year round.
