Happening as part of Electric Dreams Online, The House Never Wins is a new interactive game/performance piece that you can play from the comfort of your own home.

Created by theatre-makers Kill the Cat, the piece was originally commissioned by Upstart Theatre as part of DARE Festival 2019.

With plummeting insect numbers, thinning ice sheets and sea levels rising, The House Never Wins explores the climate crisis and gambling with our planet’s future.
