Forced Entertainment
The Possible Impossible House

 Sold out

Combining home-made visual magic and live sound effects, this is the first work Forced Entertainment has created for young people and families.

In the library of The Possible Impossible House, a doodle of a girl springs from the blank page of an algebra book. She’ll take you on an adventure around labyrinthine corridors, a deserted ballroom and a cupboard under the stairs, encountering a motley crew of characters. There’s a flock of rowdy birds, a talking mouse, a not-so-very-frightening ghost and an army of dancing soldiers.

At the forefront of contemporary theatre over the past 30 years, the international trailblazers Forced Entertainment collaborate with visual artist Vlatka Horvat, whose collages help summon the house and figures inside.
