  • The House

Now published by Josef Weinberger Plays!

Genre: Comedy

Author: Parks, Brian

The Redmonds have an unusual relationship – with their dream home. With the kids now raised, it’s finally time to move on. They don’t, though, want to just sell the place. They want to entrust it to its next owners, so that the new people can have the same great life there as they’ve had.

So the Redmonds have specially selected the buyers, the Libetts. After the official sale, both couples gather in the house for celebratory cocktails and a ceremonial handover of keys. But their party starts turning increasingly awkward, then spins further and further out of control.

The House is an antic, edgy comedy about property, deception, dentists, and a cat named Bismarck.
