“Whenever I go to Trap Door Theatre, I know I can expect the unexpected. This is a company determined to venture where other companies would fear to tread, and Feedlot is yet another strong example of how that fearlessness pays off in spades.” 
-Jeff Rossen, Gay Chicago Magazine

A macho Vietnam Veteran taunts a young college student and exorcises the nagging fear rooted in men.

A misfit cowboy avenges his sisters’ death by taking a feedlot hostage.

Two men’s haunting journey into a nightmare if manipulation, sex, and control.

Five guys, a grain elevator, and cattle.
