From the creator of the beloved Bambert’s Book of Lost Stories comes this part fairy-tale and part mad-cap adventure story! HOUSE is a heart-felt and hilarious tale of loneliness, friendship and flying houses. 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.

Fri 5 – Sat 13 Feb at Heath Ledger Theatre, tickets from $20 - $135. Family packs are available. Book now.
