Trap Door Theatre is a Chicago-based avante-garde theatre company with a focus on European and original experimental material. Trap Door Theatre was incorporated in 1990 as a nomadic company touring theatres in Stockholm, Berlin, Zakopane, and Paris. In 1994, Trap Door brought its European tradition to the United States, creating a permanent home for the company in Chicago. They have won a number of Jeff Awards.[1]
