Background


The multi award winning Hope Theatre presents a rare revival of Wendy MacLeod's deliciously dark comic drama given cult status by the 90's film starring Parker Posey.


THE HOUSE OF YES is the 11th in-house production from The Hope Theatre team and is directed by its award winning Artistic Director Matthew Parker.


It follows previous in-house shows THRILL ME: THE LEOPOLD & LOEB STORY (3 Off West End Award nominations), THE LESSON (4 Off West End Award nominations) and LOVESONG OF THE ELECTRIC BEAR (winner of 2 Off West End Awards and transferred to The Arts Theatre, West End).


Synopsis


Just what happens when you grow up in a house that only says "yes"?


Meet the Pascals.


A family living in the shadow of the Kennedy clan.


Outside their Washington D.C. home a hurricane is raging.


Inside, at the eye of the storm, a series of twisted and dangerous events have been set in motion that can only have one destination.


It's Thanksgiving, 1983.


Jackie-O is beyond excited to have her twin brother Marty home.


He's excited too, but for different reasons.


He's bringing home his fiancée to meet the family.


Younger brother Anthony is impressed, perhaps worryingly so, and mother Pascal is too zoned out on pills to be paying much attention to anything.


The scene is set for an evening of twisted machinations and mind-games that will leave the players with scars that will never ever heal.
