Trap Street is unusual.

In Darkness Comes Alive, we took you on three strange audio tours, all weaving through a hidden gallery of neon art, where human souls vibrated and hummed inside glowing glass tubes.

So. That’s a good example of what we mean when we say “we’re working on a new play.”

But there’s more to it than that. It’s not just that we mix mediums (and media). Or that we set our shows in unusual spaces. Or that we’re fascinated with ghosts and disasters and outer space. 

Our process in creating new work is also unconventional, and when we say it’s “collaborative,” we mean that in several ways. We take turns producing shows, our writers are also performers, our designers are also directors, and our voice actors are also musicians.

This blog is where we’ll give you a window into exactly how this works. From the development of new scripts, to glimpses of new audio drama, to the history of new show locations, we want to invite you to join the story long before it debuts. 

We believe that when you know how art is created, and when you can form a real relationship with the characters (and creators) of a story, it makes a difference. The story is more vibrant. Your perception is more connected. 

Also, we thought it would be fun.

That’s the last thing to know about Trap Street. It’s not just a company, but a community of friends. It’s a home base for artists who embrace the undying pursuit of bizarre and beautiful adventures.

Thanks for being a part of it.
