The House - Competition Length Version

The House - Competition Length Version

by Lindsay Price

Do ghosts make a house haunted, or are houses evil to begin with? This question and others are answered in The House.

Join the Grey One as they share the stories of houses that hold lost children, jealousy gone wrong, and things beyond explaining.

Do you believe in haunted houses? Did that door just creak open on its own? Who’s walking upstairs? Only the house knows…

This version of The House is cut to a competition one act length.
