Trap Door - a musical thriller about disappearances, some that we notice, some that we don't.  
1919, Toronto the Good, where booze cans and brothels are hidden in places any God-fearing Methodist can find them: the Music Halls.  Enter Teddy, a young woman in search of her sister, who went missing soon after moving to the city.   Like her sister before her, she gets work at The Grand Opera and the owner is none other than the infamous real-life impresario Ambrose Small, who sells his theatre chain and vanishes from sight a week after she arrives, never to be heard from again.  Where he went, perhaps only Teddy can say.   But, then, where is she?  Was she ever even there?  Trap Door is a haunting true-crime story about a young woman's introduction to the decadence and brutality of city life in the early 20th century.
