‘A completely brilliant piece of work…you’ll be driven deliciously mad’
The Scotsman – *****
‘Trestle offers a real treat…a delicately playful piece’
‘The eloquent mime and enigmatic masks…add another element of unreality’
Having toured most of its productions to Holland over the years, Trestle ran a residency in Amsterdam, on October 1995, for professional performers. This was the first stage of a Dutch collaboration which culminated in the creation of Fool House (Trestle Goes Dutch).
Having joined forces with Dutch performers, Trestle created a ‘farce of international proportions’. Running a total of 1 hour 40 in full mask and with an original soundtrack, a piece was created that told a story in many languages, a story about different people living under the same roof.
