ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
ABOUT THE ACTORS
Cristina Pronzati (she/her). Having been involved in theatre and film in NY ever since her college days, this is not her first Trap Door experience: she played Helen of Troy in Troy Women, and joined the company cast for Catherine Sullivan’s production of Ice Floes of Franz Josef Land, at the hauntingly beautiful Angel Orensanz Foundation in the Lower East Side in NYC, a memory she treasures. She appeared in a Martin Scorsese film, The Age of Innocence; she wrote, directed and acted in her own short film, Rendez Vous; and loved singing as Loretta Lynn in the corky AMC reality series Into Character. She most recently enjoyed playing Medea with the Hudson Valley Performing Arts Lab in Poughkeepsie; Antigone /Creon in Antigone, and Betty in Living Closely, an original collaborative piece she co-wrote, with The Middle Company in Cold Springs. She also appeared in the community-driven magical production of Our Town, by the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival.
Bob Wilson (Person 3) is a proud member of The Trap Door and has appeared in these Trap productions: Lipstick Lobotomy, Naked, Letter Of Love, The Locketeer, The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui, Fantasy Island For Dummies, The Arsonists, Anger/Fly, A Couple Of Poor Polish Speaking Romanians (on the Poland-Romania tour), No Darkness Round My Stone, and Old Clown Wanted (also in New York and Romania). Elsewhere, he’s been seen in Waiting For Godot and The Beauty Queen Of Leenane at Redtwist and Lives Of The Monster Dogs and The Armageddon Radio Hour at WNEP. And Soiree Dada. Thanks for watching.
