“The world’s pretty crazy right now. We could all do with a distraction. Take a seat, get ready to play – for The House is on fire. A new interactive game theatre piece that you can play from the comfort of your own home. Exploring climate crisis, self-isolation and gambling with the planet’s future.”
Kill The Cat Theatre have created a unique new show where audiences can participate from the comfort of their own sofa. “The House Never Wins” is an interactive theatre performance exploring the climate crisis, self-isolation and gambling for the planet. Connecting with theatres across the country, Kill The Cat will be going on a “virtual” tour in October 2020 offering theatre goers an alternative way to experience theatre: through Zoom and your mobile phone.
The House Never Wins is an exciting hands-on experience where audience members are actively asked to be involved in the journey of the piece. Receiving information through both zoom and their phones, audiences will play what seems to be a simple game of blackjack. However, there’s a catch. Whilst trying to pit your luck against the dealer, you also must keep The House alive, messages appear on your phone: sea levels rising, mass extinctions, the burning Amazon, The House goes bust, the casino collapses. But surely you are only here to win a real cash prize?
