House of Great Surprise

for children ages 6 and up


The poor Mr. Peppercorn has bought a little house at the seaside. The rich Mr. Goldypurse has also bought a little house at the seaside. Full of anticipation both move into the same house that has been sold twice. Since the seller Mr. Seller is out of office, the two men have to deal with the unusual situation by themselves. The quarrels start getting stronger when Mr. Goldypurse´s furniture is delivered and when Mr. Peppercorn´s pet squirrel doesn´t keep to the border through the house the two have decided on.

HOUSE OF GREAT SURPRISE is a play about how two rivals with very different views on life can become friends.
