PThe Trap Door Theatre Company presents the Midwest premiere of Horses at the Window, by Matei Visniec, directed by Radu Alexandru-Nica. This comedy of futile martyrdom and overzealous patriotism is a penetrating, playful examination of the women who wait patiently at home for their fighting men. A mother, daughter and wife say goodbye to their men, when a messenger appears with flowers, compliments and death portents. A charming treacherous guide, the Messenger's seductive infiltration into their lives is an allegory for the quiet way the idea of war can become commonplace in society.
