Romania was a biting success for our little American avant-garde company!  Horses at the Window made its Romania debut at the world renowned International Theatre Festival in Sibiu.  We were very fortunate to perform in their most unique venue: a 12th century fortress in the village of Cisnadiora amidst the Carpathian Mountains.  The venue was designed to hold around 70 people, but Trap Door set a record and packed in over 200 people into the ancient walls, a festival record!  Our esteemed audience included playwright, Matei Visniec, Romanian Director, Radu Alexandru-Nica  and his proud parents.   The show was then off  for its grand finale at the National Theatre in Bucharest.   We closed with glowing applause and the satisfaction of performing for a full audience in one of Europe’s most prestigious Theatres.  Thank you, again, to all who made our trip such a success and spread Trap Door’s name across the seas to a new and enthusiastic following.
