The Cellar Door Project is a site-specific theatre company that makes plays about things that actually happened. We make plays in cool places. We tell the story of your neighbourhood, in your neighbourhood. Be it theatre, film, or art installations, we are in the business of reflecting a community’s past and present back to them by its telling stories in the spaces they originally happened in. To us, “the past” means anything from the early beginnings of a city to yesterday’s breakfast.
The Cellar Door Project creates pieces based on characters whose stories unfold in the same space in which the audience sits. Or stands. Or runs. So far, these spaces have included everywhere from parks to cemeteries, record stores to local dive bars to Kingston City Hall.
