The Dollhouse of Commons will become home to One Trunk Theatre's theatrical experiments and touring in years to come. Built on a bike trailer, this hyper-versatile space (with one side that opens completely (think removing the 4th wall) allows for a new performer/audience relationship. Audiences of up to 4 people can experience a show performed inside, or large groups can peer through the doors and windows to see a show going on inside, or the space can simple be a backdrop or bandshell for shows at festivals. We look forward to making enormous discoveries in a miniature environment.
