The House tells the story of the funeral home of the Warehouse family. On his deathbed the mortician changes his last wish, his will, a secret begins to unravel and an evil plan to take shape. Sofie Krog and David Faraco will guide you past closed doors and into rooms that conceal dark, unspeakable deeds. This complex puppetry performance takes place in a revolving set that combines the interweaving of lights, unusual contraptions and eerie sound effects. The setting per slice for this comically chilling journey.
