Do ghosts make a house haunted, or are houses evil to begin with? Only the spooky drama, The House, knows for sure...

Theatrefolk - The Drama Teacher Resource Company


by Bradley Walton

After being mysteriously transported to a magical dimension inhabited by characters from fictional stories, three teenagers are pulled into a conflict between Good Ideas from classic tales and Bad Ideas, which have proliferated with the rise of online publishing.

Over the course of their adventure, they encounter Alice and the White Rabbit from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Snow White’s formerly evil stepmother, the witch from Hansel and Gretel, Lady Macbeth, Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice, Santa Claus, and others.

In an exploration of the nature of stories, characters, and the responsibilities of creators to their creations, the trio begins to wonder… could they be characters in a story themselves?
