When you lose something, you gain something else…

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-piggeldy mess of a place as tall as the trees. Inside, she finds Piotr, a 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 fairy-tale, part mad-cap adventure story, Barking Gecko Theatre's HOUSE is a heart-felt and hilarious tale of loneliness, friendship and flying houses.

The original production of HOUSE was a Barking Gecko Theatre and Perth Festival co-production
