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, one of Europe’s most prestigious theatres.

Special thanks to Dominica Radulescu for her kind invitation to perform in Lexington, Virginia.
