Heartbreak House

11th - 14th July

A group of guests arrive for a weekend in a country house, built to resemble a ship. It is occupied by a siren-like woman, her peacock husband, and presided over by a crazy old sea captain. They soon learn that there is something in the atmosphere of this curious house that drives people to act in unpredictable ways, and under its topsy-turvy influence more than one of them will experience heartbreak.
