Trap Door Theatre presents: The Martyrdom of Peter Ohey


Drector Nicole Wiesner brings her signature Trap Door style to adapt and direct this obscure Mrożek farce. One of Poland’s most celebrated playwrights, Sławomir Mrożek wrote this absurdist piece as a subtle critique of the political system of the time. In The Martyrdom of Peter Ohey, a family's home life turns upside down when a tiger suddenly appears in their bathroom. As more and more absurd characters invade their home (a Scientist, a Government Official, a Circus Manager, and more), the family must decide whether or not to give in and join the circus.
