Outside the House


for children from ages 3 and up


Should one leave the safety of one´s home? Best only to take a look first. The two characters dare to go outside, outside the house. They take their first, curious steps into the world. There they meet a big cow and a little mouse. They climb up a mountain and discover that there is much more to see outside. But then it starts to get dark and the two decide to go back inside for the time being.

OUTSIDE THE HOUSE tells a little, and at the same time a big story, about the course of a whole day, from going out to returning back home - in short: about life.
