NANA @ Trap Door Theatre!

As Trap Door Theatre put it: Olwen Wymark’s splendid dramatization of Zola’s Nana is a story of sexual and financial greed in nineteenth-century Parisian society, depicting the rise and tragic downfall of a young courtesan.

TTS Alumni Include: Dan Cobbler (BFA Acting 13′), & Emily Lotspeich (BFA Theatre Studies 03′).

Trap Door Theatre is committed to seeking out challenging and obscure works. Whether a forgotten European classic, an international project rarely seen in the United States, or an untarnished piece of American literature, Trap Door seeks diverse voices and presents them through innovative expression. We mix established and imaginative techniques to illustrate the absurdities of living in today’s society.

Nana Closes May 18th 2024.
