WA’s innovative theatre company Barking Gecko Theatre will be performing an encore season of their children’s theatre production, HOUSE.

Running from Mar 24 – 27 at the Heath Ledger Theatre (State Theatre Centre of WA), HOUSE is a heart-felt and hilarious tale of loneliness and friendship that is part fairy tale, part adventure story. Suitable for ages 8+, the production features a cast of memorable characters and is sure to provide a strong dose of escapism for the whole family.

The production follows the story of Cathelijn, who finds herself completely alone, with 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 when suddenly she spots the house – a higgledy-piggledy mess of a place as tall as the trees. Inside the house, she finds Piotr, a small boy who never stops talking, and Elka, a grey-haired explorer who insists they keep the curtains closed tight.

Piotr is played by Isaac Diamond, theatre-maker and actor from Perth.

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 on a journey of self-realisation and self-determination.

WA’s longest running professional theatre company, Barking Gecko Theatre creates first-class theatre for families that leaves behind a lasting residue of hope and imagination on young audiences and adults alike.

Tickets are selling now for the production’s encore season run from Mar 24 – 27 at the State Theatre Centre WA. Grab yours here.
