The ASL interpretation of THE ARSONISTS is part of Trap Door Theatre's continuing commitment to making a top-flight theatre experience accessible to a wide range of audiences.
Parisian Clowning Master and Director and Founder of Cie Umbral Theatre in Paris, Victor Quezada-Perez uses stylistic clowning to re-envision Frisch’s parable about accommodating the very thing that will destroy you. In the play, mild-mannered Mr. Biedermann, emotionally castrated by his bourgeois guilt, allows two smooth-talking arsonists to burn his house to the ground.
This Project is Supported by the Cultural Services of the French Consulate in Chicago; The Swiss Benevolent Society of Chicago; The Saints, volunteers for the performing arts; and Cie Umbral.
