n The House is a Live And Local show that is being presented by Sofie Krog Teater on Friday, October 18, from 7.30pm.

This visually stunning, funny and darkly surreal puppet show can be seen at Highfields School’s Starkholmes Site. Set in a Tim Burton-style house of horrors, it will be a treat for teens and adults alike.

The plot revolves around an old lady who lives in The House (a funeral home) and all the dodgy characters that have got an eye on her Will. Dastardly plans are hatched by the bumbling twin orphans, the nephew’s nasty wife and the crooked lawyer. Only the dog seems to be honest but will he save the day?

Tickets are £8 for adults, and £6 for those aged 18 and under. Call 07447 718366 or collect in person from Peli-Deli or Designate at the Gate, in Matlock.
