Presented by Barking Gecko Theatre

Cathelijn is completely and undeniably alone: no friends, no family, no-one to turn to. 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 an extraordinary adventure that takes Cathelijn across the world and deep inside herself, on a journey of self-realisation and self-determination.

Part contemporary fairy-tale, part mad-cap adventure story, HOUSE is a heart-felt and hilarious tale of loneliness, belonging and flying houses. Featuring a cast of loveable characters and a living, breathing house, this fun-filled escapade for the whole family will set imaginations soaring.
