Written in 1969 by one of Poland’s most revolutionary playwrights, The Old Woman Broods is a dark satiric look at one woman’s grotesque struggle against an unchecked power that is leading the world to disaster. The landscape has disappeared, garbage falls like snow, beachgoers still come to bask in the sun, and wars break out in this farce packed with terror and hope.

THE OLD WOMAN BROODS runs December 13 – January 19 at Trap Door Theatre, 1655 West Cortland Ave.  Chicago, IL 60622. For more information visit
