The Door

Two men, and a broken door that neither will close. As the door bangs, we hear accusation and excuse, and the story of a dead hero.

Who is responsible? 

Under Rob Swinton’s direction, The Door is a taut, tense exploration of the relationship between these men as well as our justifications for action and inaction, and for our refusal to accept responsibility for the consequence of unintended outcomes.

This is a pungent comment on recent wars and our own passivity in the face of failure. It’s also a fascinating journey of two men, a leader and a follower, from widely divergent backgrounds searching for a common understanding.

Who’s going to stop that door from banging?
