The House by the Lake

The House by the Lake

Through a haunted gaze, a cabaret singer tells the story of three sisters forced to hide in a tiny cold room during the Holocaust. Waiting for their mother to return, the sisters try preserving a shadow of the life they once knew. While reality’s falling apart, they create a fantastic and absurd world, proving imagination can’t be silenced even in the darkest times. Swinging between musical cabaret and contemporary puppetry for adults, humor and tragedy are woven together for a powerful theatrical experience.
