A completely different theatrical experience from this exciting young Catalan company, performing internationally for the first time.

A group of people wait for the last person to join the party. But something has gone wrong…

A House Is Not A Home is an adaptation of Interior, a moving play by Belgian playwright Maurice Maeterlinck. The plot is simple: from outside, two people observe the interior of a house. They have some bad news to share with the residents. But the image of apparent happiness on the interior will make it hard to do this.

A House Is Not A Home is performed outdoors with the audience listening in on headphones. The audience becomes aware of the isolation within the house as they're able to eavesdrop on the lives of its residents. This "stalker action" adds a soundtrack that turns the spectator into an active witness of the events in the house. A single word can disrupt the order of events and transform a peaceful home into an inhospitable place.

The show lasts approximately 70 minutes. Headphones will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis so please arrive in good time. We recommend that this show is for all ages 12+, due to its content and the headphone technology.
