Dueling Critics: Horses at the Window

Chicago is full of brave theater troupes and brave theater goers. But when you string together the words “absurdist” and “Romanian,” you know you're in for a challenge, both as a company and as an audience.

That's just the kind of challenge Trap Door thrives on. Their latest production, Horses at the Window, looks at misplaced patriotism and insanity of war through the eyes of three women who separately send a son, a father, and a husband off to battle. Eight Forty Eight's dueling theater critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman tell us if we should saddle up, too. 

Horses at the Window plays at Trap Door Theatre through April 25.
