Online Theatre: The House Never Wins

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

We could all do with a distraction. Take a seat at the table, get ready to play.

(There’s a real cash prize at stake.) The House is on fire.

The House Never Wins by Kill The Cat Theatre invites you to play what seems to be a simple game of blackjack in the casino called “The House”. 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? The House Never Wins is a fun, engaging and thought-provoking evening which reminds us of the importance of working together to keep our planet alive.

A new interactive game theatre piece that you can play from the comfort of your own home. Exploring the climate crisis, self-isolation and gambling with the planet’s future.
