The Water Hen has been invited to Poland and Romania in the fall of 2020! Help us get there!


This will be our second collaboration with guest director from Hungary, Zoltán Balázs.


Director, Zoltán Balázs


Following a 6 week run in the spring at their home base in Chicago, The Water Hen tour will take place (post-pandemic) where it will premier in Budapest, Hungary, followed by the cities of Krakow and Zakopane, Poland, where we will end at the renown Teatr Witkacy, who’s main work is dedicated to the playwright himself. Trap Door has had the honor of touring nationally and internationally.  Next year we have been invited back to perform in Hungary and 2 cities in Poland in October of 2020 with our latest production of The Water Hen written by one of Poland’s masters, Stanislaw I. Witkiewicz.


We are seeking $15,000 for airfare to send 10 artists across the ocean for a once in a lifetime experience. Please show your support for our international journeys!
