After delighting audiences and receiving rave reviews in its sold out Perth Festival Season earlier this year, HOUSE returns for a special school matinee season.
A new contemporary fairy-tale, HOUSE is a mad-cap adventure story of loneliness, belonging and flying houses that takes our heroine, Cathelijn on a journey of self-realisation and self-determination.
Cathelijn is all by herself in the centre of a dark forest, she tries to be strong, like a Viking. And that’s when she sees it – the house. A higgledy-piggledy mess of a place as tall as the trees. Inside, she finds Piotr, a small boy who never stops talking, and Elka, a grey-haired explorer who insists they keep the curtains closed tight.
When they suddenly launch into the air and set off across the sky, Cathelijn learns that this is no ordinary house: it’s a Rescue House, and it rescues the Loneliest Child in the world. So begins our extraordinary adventure.
Featuring a cast of memorable characters, and a living breathing house, this fun-filled escapade will set your students imaginations soaring.
The perfect end of year school excursion for students in year 3 and above!
“A beautiful production…whimsical and wonderful…HOUSE enchants all ages” ★★★★
