Support Trap Door Theatre

Trap Door Theatre has been a hub for artistic exploration – bringing first translations, unique scripts and standout performances for 28 years. Whether in our 41 seat storefront theatre in Chicago, or on tour across Europe, Trap Door delights in bringing a bit of the avant garde to the stage.
While ticket sales cover a small portion of our operations, we rely heavily on the support of individuals, foundations and organizations to help sustain our artistic ambitions. Support at any level helps us pay our rent, hire incredible artists and create memorable productions for years to come.
