Based on the memoirs of Andrea Ashworth, Once in a House on Fire is an extraordinary story about ordinary people. In a rainy world of poverty, violence, packing up and moving on, Andy and her sisters escape through stories, games and dreams of a ‘happy family’. But with each new start ending faster than the last, their hopes are stubbed out along with their mum’s cigarettes. As Andy gets older and a new life beckons, she knows her escape will come at a cost.

Tickets are now on sale!
