Fool House

July 24 1997-January 10 1998

‘A completely brilliant piece of work…you’ll be driven deliciously mad’ 

The Scotsman – *****

‘Trestle offers a real treat…a delicately playful piece’

The Guardian

‘The eloquent mime and enigmatic masks…add another element of unreality’

The Stage

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.
