Our House is on fire. Come play live and gamble with the planet’s future.

The House Never Wins invites you to play what seems to be a simple game of blackjack in the casino.  However, there’s a catch. Whilst trying to pit your luck against the dealer, you also must keep The House alive. Interacting through game play on Zoom, and with WhatsApp pinging you visual messages, surveys and puzzles, can you work together to keep The House afloat, or will the lure of a real cash prize be too much to resist?

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.

Booking closes for this event midday, the day prior to the performance.

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval
