The House tells the story of the Warehouse Family Funeral Home.

On her deathbed the undertaker changes her last will and testament,  a secret begins to unravel and an evil plan is formed.

Sofie Krog and David Faraco lead you behind closed doors and into rooms which hide unspeakably dark deeds.

This complex puppet performance takes place in a revolving set featuring intricate lighting, strange contraptions and scary sound effects; the perfect setting for this comically chilling journey.

Presented as part of Manipulate Festival 2024, running from 1–11 February at venues across Edinburgh. Find out about other performances at the Traverse here.

The House is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
